Hang Ten…Errrrr…Two

There was some serious house project shenanigans going on this weekend here at Angie’s Roost.  Definitely no shortage of blog posts coming up this week!  First up on the docket, we’ll be revisiting the curtain making project that my mom and I tackled last weekend with a little curtain hanging…two panels that is…not ten.  Without further ado, I bring you our new dining room curtains:

Now…the curtains have yet to be ironed, so there is a little bit of wonkiness going on there.  What can I say, I was in a big rush to get them hung up there and see what they would look like in the dining room.  C’mon…you know you’ve been there too so don’t judge.  Maybe not with curtain hanging impatience, but something else in the ballpark.  I’m sure I’ll bring the curtains down at some point this week to iron them all out, especially so the seams don’t bulge up anymore.  Anyway, this little curtain rod/curtain hanging project included determining the proper placement of the curtain rod:

Lining up the brackets for proper placement:

Screwing the three brackets into the wood trim:

And attaching the curtain clips to the curtain:

We ended up choosing to screw all three of the brackets directly into the wood trim.  It looked a little funny with the end brackets screwed into the wall with the middle bracket attached to the trim piece.  Besides, it provided a much more secure materials to screw into than sheet rock would have.  All in all, I’m ecstatic over the final curtain product and how well the pair of panels has adapted to its new environment in our dining room.

And from another angle:

Oh…and did any of you blog super stalkers notice the other new addition to the dining room?  I’m not even convinced my mom could pick it out.  Look closely…really really closely…and up…up towards the top of the window.

Colby added a new piece of trim to the top of the window to really give it a polished look.  We ended up deciding against crown molding in the dining room since it would interrupt the archway between the dining room and the kitchen.  However, the area above the window still needed something to top it all off.  Thus, Colby added a final trim piece around the top of the window to give it that added punch.  Definitely a big improvement.  Now off to paint it!

Pssst…has anyone used those curtain clips before?  This was a first for me and I love, love, LOVED them!  They’re so easy to use and it makes for significantly easier curtains sewing projects!
