Pom Pom Curtains


I’m a big fan of white curtains, but with the white walls in Charley’s new room, I felt these needed a little something extra.  A little color and a little whimsy.  I love the sweet detail on the Ikea panels so I mimicked that with pom pom ribbon. 


I laid the curtains on the ground and used liquid stitch to attach the ribbon to the inside edge of each panel.  I used red for more than half of the length, but finished it with pale pink.  I’m loving the contrast.


Instead of a regular curtain rod, I used a copper pipe from the plumbing section at Home Depot.  It’s a fun little surprise when you look up.  It’s those unexpected things that make a room extra special.


For the life of me I couldn’t get a good photo of the whole window with the finished curtains.  Perhaps I’ll have some luck when I take some pics of the whole room for you soon.  Slowly but surely it’s coming along!

  1. One of my oldest internet bookmarks is of pom pomed curtains. Love them then, love them now. I used yellow in our nursery but I really like the red looks here!

    1. Yeah, I may be a little obsessed with pom pom ribbon:)
