you know how lots of times the way you planned things all falls apart?
we planned to hang these window treatments on rods that were already there. we didn't have our painters with us in austin and didn't want to leave big holes in the walls. but they were too short. so we shopped the house and found a bolt of fun trim in an armoire. a quick trip to the store for some fabric adhesive and a few minutes of ironing resulted in the prettiest panels we ever did see. happy accident.
so much of what you see in our blog is the result of a happy accident.
but you could totally do this on purpose...
one | hang window treatments like they are ankle length jeans and your floor is your feet
two | shop your house or yard sales or *shudder* a store for fun trim
three | see if your mom has some of this fabric adhesive. mine always does. or they have it at michael's.
four | pull the ironing board right up to your already hanging panels and iron the trim on the bottom
five | offer up a prayer of gratitude for happy accidents
sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together
and i'm not just talking 'bout the window treatments
happy thursday, beautiful people
christina for all
