My House | Living Room Drapes

Do you ever have one of those projects that get started and then seem to never get finished?  
That was how I felt about my drapes in my living/dining room.  I originally had the black and white striped panels in there... but I quickly fell out of love with them.  I move a set into my black and white bathroom to use as a shower curtain and now I am back in love with them.  So after leaving the windows bare for a while I decided I wanted some thing with pattern, and something a little softer.
First let me note that I was in a rush to take these pictures before I had a load of kids coming over to play so they are not my best... and lets be real, I still have no clue how to use me DSL camera!  That really is the project I started and have not finished; reading the instruction book to my camera!
Bad Blogger!

Sorry I digress... 
 I have always loved the trellis pattern and just so happened to have the stencil from a client project.  I also knew I wanted to keep these rooms a little more formal so I thought pinch pleats were in order.

I started by following Linda's tutorial for pinch pleats and then ended up tweaking it a little.  I will share a full tutorial next week and a super great secret on how to get the perfect pleats!

I'm always amazed by people who can see more than a hem!! I love how soothing they make the room feel.

Hi Tiffany, these look great. Thanks for the link love. All you need it time on your side, and that is not easy to find these days. Can't wait to read your tutorial.

Tiffany, the drapes look great. I love that trellis pattern. It never gets old. So classic and beautiful, but still modern.
