Over the weekend, Tal hung the pom-pom curtains
that I dressed-up for Hadley's nursery/big girl bedroom!
At Ikea, I bought two pairs of white Vivan curtains for $10 per pair:
My inspiration for this project came from Serena and Lilly's French Tassel curtains
...but they were $98 for one 96-inch panel (way out of my budget)!
My knock-off version took about 4.5 hours to complete
and cost $58 total for 4 panels...less than $15 per panel!
To get started, I washed and ironed Ikea's Vivan curtains.
Then, to add some color and whimsy to the curtains,
I bought 25 yards of turquoise pom-pom trim for $36 on Etsy:
I selected pom-pom trim that coordinated with
Hadley's Seaside Floral Bedding from PBteen:
I hot-glued the pom-pom trim to the curtain:
Finally, since the panels were 98-inches long,
I used Heat 'n Bond to shorten the curtains by 2 inches,
so they barely touched the floor:
Adding trim to basic white curtains was a simple, inexpensive way
to tie in the color scheme for Hadley's nursery/big girl bedroom:
Thanks to Tal for hanging the curtains high and wide for me!
