Curtain Mistreatment

These are the Waverly curtains I bought for my living room a few months ago. Remember my post about using a tablecloth for a curtain? Well, when I was at TJ Maxx and thought of that great idea, I only purchased one of the pretty green/yellow/blue/cream plaid tablecloths. So after experimenting and then posting my idea I needed three more. I went to two other TJ Maxx stores and cannot find anymore in that design. So, if any of you decide to use tablecloths as curtains, be sure you purchase as many as you need at once.

Back to the Waverly curtains I have up now. I love them. I love the rich colors and how I can pull those colors from the curtains with colorful accessories and other fabrics in the room.

I purchased this plaid fabric and added an easy mistreatment to the top of my curtains. So simple to do. I just clipped the piece in the ring clips with the curtain top. I love it. I love that touch of red at the top. It makes the curtains look more substantial. I feel it makes the room even more cozy.

* I will post in a few days about my hutch. The paint is drying. I decided on the new hardware I will replace on it. *

Fantastic job, Karol. They look like they're professionally done. is the plaid also Waverly? They match perfectly.

As for finding the matching plaid tablecloths at TJ Maxx, why not give a shout-out to your readers? I'd be glad to help out a fellow bargain-hunter, by checking my local TJ Maxx. Just a thought...

What a pretty touch on the top of your curtains! I am sorry about the table cloth not being available at the other store. I will keep that in mind when we get to my back room windows. :o)
