So worth it

Yesterday was a whirlwind! No joke I spent probably 6 hours on my hands and knees working on these chevron curtains! I just kept thinking about the day when I can bring baby boy home to this cute room with the curtains I made for him! I am really proud of myself too, becuase I usually have my husband or one of my brothers help me with the math and measuring and what not but everyone was busy. So I did it ALL by myself. As I tell Evie "Your such a big girl"!

To tell you the truth I am not sure how I did it. There was a whole lot of measuring and connecting the dots I marked with tape. And then I used regular paint (which most would use fabric paint, I just didn't want to buy anymore paint and I wanted it to match the mirror I painted for the room) and used the "blotting technique" with a paint brush.

I feel really bad I can't give you better directions! It was so chaotic with watching my sweet babe and nephew at my Moms house. And to top it off the paint leaked through to my Mom's floor! Yikes! I just wiped it down with fingernail polish and it came right off. Thanks Mom for letting me do my crazy projects at your house!

Amazing. I would love to tackle a project like this but I can't figure out the measuring.. my brain isn't programmed for those things!

Awesome job! I too am in the midst of a curtain project. I actually thought of you when I got the fabric... hint: it matches some of your furniture. I will post soon.
