It is week four and this thing is getting real. Like, for real we gotta really make some real stuff happen, for real.
Our big accomplishment this week was that our ikea/silk hybrid drapes went up and I am so happy with them. The seamstress took Ikea Lenda panels and added a band of persimmon silk that I picked up on the clearance remnant rack. I personally think they look pretty stinking good based on their humble beginnings. We also had her cut off the tab tops and add a band of reinforcement to the tops so that we could use traditional drapery pins and rings instead of clips. I'll share details of that next week along with the Amazon curtain rods that TJ Breil from Slab Woodworking is making custom finials for. This not-so-expensive Ikea/Amazon hack, should look like a million bucks when we are done. That's the plan, at least.
