the big boy room

A couple months ago, I switched Hudson's room with our former guest bedroom. I am just now finishing up what I started. And last night, I made drapes… out of drop cloths. Because of the slanted ceilings in his room, I had less room to work with around his window. I was in need of thinner drapes than standard sizes and was able to use 1 6x9 cloth which amounted to $10! I cut it down the middle, sewed the unfinished edge and sewed up a pole pocket at the top. At first I thought I'd bleach the canvas cloth, but since we aren't painting his room, the beige/grey contrast works well with those stark white walls. The orange trim adds a little whimsical feel to his big boy room, and I'm loving it. What do you think?

Great idea! Everything looks fabulous! I love the orange trim on the curtain, a nice pop of color.

Hello! I found your blog through Sadie + Stella - how beautiful! I love the watercolor on your header. And your boy's room - precious! I love the "puppy dog tails" print. Well done!
