I wanted to use these black and white damask Target drapes in her room, since they were just sitting unused in my closet. I had four panels and only one window large enough for drapes, so I had to scheme up a purpose for the other pair. I finally decided to use them on the walls. The drapes were pretty thick, so I decided not to apply them with starch since a thin fabric was recommended for that type of installation. So, I got out my staple gun and attached them that way instead. Then I added some black ribbon to cover the staples.
I had just enough fabric between the two drapes, and even have a little left over to possibly make a tiny roman shade for the little square window in her room. Now I just have to figure out how to make a tiny roman shade… but, there are a million tutorials out there, so I should be able to manage. I think?
And here is how her beadboard wallpaper turned out. Once it was painted, it looks pretty convincing. Not totally convincing, you can see the seams between each panel if you look hard enough. I really think it has added a lot of charm to her room. I am happy with it.
So, her room is coming together! I have just another project or two like hanging the other window treatments and some artwork on the walls.
