These windows are only 16" wide. I have a curved wall to deal with,, so it seems tough. I went to houzz.com and looked for window treatment ideas.
The most common choice was no treatment at all. I would go for that, except the sun is so hot there are times when you need light control.
I love the curved rod below, but I don't have enough clearance behind my table or a place to stack the drapes on the wall.
I did notice that alot of the rooms that are curved -- are like mine, a table in them.
I have some drapes here that match the family room nearby, but I don't really like them with my painting.
You can see my solution laying on the dining room table in the next room.
I went for some toile fabric, a yellow, green, and tan. The chicken theme may be overdone to some, but I'm sorry, I still love it! After all, we're out in the country and much of the house is formal, so this makes the room more cozy.
The colors go so well with my painting. The frame gold is really picked up with the colors in the drapes, and my little girl with the broken arm from 100 years ago is wearing a green dress. It's picked up in the fabric and looks wonderful!
Yes, that is a topiary rooster in the right window.
I made the drapes and the shades. I made the drapes first, and then managed to line up the design in the shades.
The shades and drapes are both interlined with flannel and blackout lining. I normally use the cheap blackout lining, but it is so stiff I used a more expensive lining that isn't as stiff. I am happy that the folds worked out beautifully.
I love the shade hardware that I got at Fabric Depot in Portland, Oregon. I can stop the shades at the exact same level on each window. I thought about making balloon shades, but decided a simple roman shade would be less fussy-- there is so much fabric in this house, less is better here.
I finished just in time. 31 people are coming to dinner. I am gathering chairs from all over. I will share a photo later of the table.
ok, I am off to cleaning. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
