Speaking of getting trim, after being unable to exercise for several months
(due to my upper back/neck injury),
I am certainly making up for lost time and attempting to get trim again, but that's a whole separate post.
Today, I want to show you the trim I finally got around to adding to the dining room curtains.
I talked about wanting to do so, here.
I did look around locally and on-line for some deep blue velvet trim,
but I just couldn't seem to find any I loved at the right price.
So I did what I normally do, I forgot all about the project entirely.
laziness patience has paid off, again.
Back in November, while doing a little shopping in Lexington,
I happened upon a bolt of trim in a little vintage shop.
This trim, to be exact......
It was tucked down on the bottom shelf with some random objects.
I quickly took it up front and inquired about the quantity and the price.
Well, low and behold, wouldn't you know, there was exactly one yard more than I needed
and the kind shop owner wanted me to take it off his hands for a mere $15. SOLD!
My mother was in town visiting at the time
and she attached it with stitch witchery to the edges of all four panels.
I tried hard to get a picture of the entire bay window, but the the lighting was too bright at the time.
The simple trim really does dress up the curtains just enough.
So now that the curtains finally got trim,
I'm going to bust my butt getting trim, hopefully before Spring Break.
Thanks for all the feedback on the lighting options for "The Nook".
I'm excited to tackle a few projects around here.
