I shopped, and shopped, and shopped because I refused to sew these window treatments, and time was running out until my mother's birthday party. My problem is that I usually get frustrated with what's out there and end up spending way more money on fabric then I should, (nice fabric can be really expensive and I don't live by a good discount store, so sewing items actually costs more....but you get what you want, so there's a trade off).
Not. Sewing. This. Time.
The first choice (in my head) for window treatments was to find a silk or faux silk in exactly the same color blue as athe walls. Obviously this wasn't going to happen. Then I moved to white silk and I couldn't find any that I thought was
- the right size
- worth the money (in my opinion, cause sometimes I'm cheap like that)
Crisp, snow white, crinkled, sheer, fresh, economical, flowing sheers are in my opinion a good choice.
The formal dining room looks into the sunroom. I like that the view is not obstructed.
I decided to use white wooden rods. The rods did not come in the size I needed, so I had Mr. Pink Heaven cut them to size. Since he's busy farming, I used my cordless screwdirver and slapped them up all by myself, (patience to wait for help when decorating is not my strong suit), and then, to these sleek white glossy drapery rods, I added some sheer goodness.

Look for those blessings today. Hope you have many.
