If you follow me on instagram you might have seen me working on these curtains a few weeks ago. I actually finished them a while back, but I had a horrible time trying to photograph them. These pictures are the best I could do, but I think that I like them better in real life.
These curtains are for our new "playroom" space in our new home addition. We see this room being used for playing, practicing the piano, and doing homework. I wanted the room's decoration to be an inspiring place for learning, but also just really fun. At first I thought I'd do line drawings of molecules (sorry! Showing my inner science geek here!) but I was inspired to do constellations on the curtains after seeing these sky napkins from Anthropologie. My kids LOVE looking at the stars!
I thought about making my own curtains, but in the end I decided to just embellish and modify some Ikea curtains, since they were such a great price (and they saved work too!)

I purchased the LENDA curtains from Ikea, and cut off the top rings.
