This past Saturday, MC and I went to OHCO Fabric Warehouse to search for a new fabric for the drapery panels. We looked at many and then found one that hit us both! Of course, nothing like we were out to find!!!!
A recap of MC's capabilities.... and mine also!!! Neither one of us knows how to sew, or use a sewing machine!!!! Nothing keeps us from accomplishing a project!
MC came to the rescue... ONCE MORE!
He would use IRON-ON-TAPE!!!
We purchased 18.5 yards of this damask silk .....with a dragon pattern.....BEING THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON!!! The price. $8.99 per yard!!!!
Monday morning the work commenced!!!
It took almost all afternoon for MC to finish one panel! I figured we were in for a long, dragged out week.
BUT to my surprise.....he did panel #2 that night in half the time. He was on a roll!! Bright and early on Tuesday he was back at the board!
We needed 6 panels. Four for the Dining Room and two for the Great Room. We moved the blue panels to the Kitchen.
Last night PANEL 6 WAS FINISHED !!!
THE REVEAL .....FANTASTIC.......The entire space looks GREAT and.... NEW TRAD ......
THE DINING ROOM'S FOUR PANELS ARE HUNG ON A 12.5 FOOT ROD. THE BRACKETS KEEP THE PANELS "SEPARATED". LOVE THE EXTENSION OF THE ROD...THE LOOK IS SO DIFFERENT! HUNG THE GREAT ROOM PANELS AT CEILING HEIGHT. DEFINES THEM FROM THE KITCHEN PANELS.
Did you all notice????? LOTS AND LOTS has changed! More Black and Gold....what fun!!!
WE DON'T WASTE!!!
All the white panels that we removed were added to the ones in the bedrooms.
Now the panels in the bedrooms resemble a tight belt with a very full skirt
WE REALLY HAVE FUN AROUND THE BUCKET LIST HOUSE..............
