Oh yeah . . . drapes
Two years after I finished the living room renovation we finally got around to sewing and installing the living room drapes. We had all the other shades and sheers installed, but the final red swag drapes on the picture window have been procrastinated for the longest time. The side panels were easy enough, just pressing in a few folds and stapling to the wooden rod. The three swags took a long time to figure out how to fold and drape to get a proper swaggish look. It's all just nailed to the 1-1/2" stained closet rod. Behind the sheers is a pull down grey patterned pleated shade which helps to block the sun in the summer and adds a little insulation effect in the winter.
