Dining Room Curtains

Kyle and I escaped reality and headed to Central Oregon this weekend. It’s pretty much one of the prettiest places on earth, and it makes you forget about life’s worries. We stay at this wonderful place called Five Pine Lodge, and rent out our own little cabin in the woods. I highly, highly recommend visiting Sisters, Oregon if you ever make it out to the West Coast. Seriously, think about it.

Now on to the important stuff. Curtains. I’ve been putting off this post for awhile because I had the HARDEST time picking out fabric. I was even losing sleep over it. I really, truly could not decide. So I listed the help of my smart husband, and he made the choice for me. I showed him a few inexpensive fabrics I had found (because let’s be real, I found plenty of fabrics I loved, but all were way,way above our price range) and he chose this one:

To Netherlands Collection

It’s from Premier Prints, and it’s called Netherlands. I chose the corn yellow/linen color (this print comes in a variety of colors) because as you all know, I’m stuck on yellow for some weird reason. What really got me about this fabric was that it has a linen look to it, making it appear much more expensive than its $10.99/yard price tag. Love it.

The fabric is currently hanging in my dining room, however, I haven’t had an opportunity to really sew the curtains and make them  pretty, but these pictures still give you a good idea of what they’ll look like soon…

One thing I never expected – the room appears much taller now that the curtains are hung. Hello height! Believe it or not, the table it the last piece of the puzzle and we are hoping it will be here next week.

With the dining room nearing completion, what room shall I tackle next?

    Is this considered upholstery fabric…? I’m still searching for what to use on my two old chairs, and am falling for the cloud/linen version.

      Meg, you could for sure use this for your chair fabric. I’ll bring a sample to show you next week. Deal?

    What a cheerful selection. It was worth the wait. Beautiful print and it really adds a great texture to the space.

    I love these curtains! I am going to buy the same material for our bedroom. Did you line yours?

    Did you have any trouble attaching the curtain hardware into the plaster walls? We have plaster walls and are concerned that the heavy curtains may not be sturdy enough.

      Hi Aaron! Good question! We’ve never had problems with our plaster walls – if anything, they are hard to drill all the way through for some odd reason. With that said, we always use metal anchor screws just to be safe. They work really well and are super easy to use.

      Thanks for the tip. We are installing our curtain hardware today! Do you have a picture or description of what the metal anchor screws look like? Thanks again.

    I noticed that the fabric is oddly narrow. Did you do a single decorative panel for each side? How does it look. I’d like to do this on a double window but I’m worried that the curtains will look skimpy.

    I am getting ready to make curtains for our bedroom and just found this fabric online and then saw your blog. I was wondering how many yards you purchased for your project?
