|After: New blinds, tailored valances, vibrant contrasting colors...it's hard to see, but there are brilliant pops of green in the paisely swirls that is the perfect shade of our walls which are painted in Peeled Cucumber.|
I love the way it pulls the wall color, brown blinds, and leather furniture all together.
I just have to finish the rest. I will also be "real sewing" the window seat cushion and make some pillows for the living room furniture in the contrasting fabrics below.You can see the small window on the far right has a blue bar at the top...when I ordered the blinds online from Home Depot, the only size they had(on sale for 75% off!!! cost was $1.74 with free shipping!!!!) was a little short...so we improvised and just added a piece of wood painted on the outside to blend with the frame. Since the valances will come down to cover it, it's a non-issue.

Praise be to God and Thank you St. Anthony!!!
