Girly Ruffled Curtains and Inspiration

Share It:
I finally completed a project I've been working on since we moved in!  I wanted ruffled, feminine curtains for the girls' playroom and it took me forever because I kept getting sidetracked. I finally got them done last week and I'm pretty happy with them. I am VERY unhappy with  my picture taking of them. I couldn't get the lighting right at all!  So frustrating. So while I'm going to post what I have, I'm going to try again tomorrow after reading some tutorials for tips.  If anyone has tips on how to take pics of curtains that have sunny windows please let me know!

I used a pink polka dotted fabric for the main part and then a few colorful fabrics for the ruffle. I used some leftovers to make some pillows for the  kids to sit on while they watch TV, play, draw, etc.




So while I was thinking about this playroom I was browsing Pinterest and found some great inspiration!  I will say though that I don't like to post pics without the original source and so many don't link back or list any original source!  Quite frustrating!

LOVE the furniture and the serene colors

How cool is that ladder/loft?  I can imagine many trips
to the ER though.  I used to use the clothes line
art display system in my classroom and I think it's
the best yet.

Love the map motif.

Ok, who wouldn't want this??  I mean I want this.
In my room. Molly and Ellie can visit me as I swing
in my room.
