Well if they're not princess curtains, they're definitely fairtale-esque! I wasn't going for this look, but when I saw all the fancy fabric at 60% off at Joann's and discovered this rich-coral color I think it was a go. Last week you may remember I gave my daughter's closet a good cleaning and organizing session. But it wasn't quite finished. It still needed some cute curtains for closet doors on the outside.
I bought 5 yards of this sheer coral fabric with flecks of gold dots all over it for $4 a yard. :) So in total, I spent $20 plus tax. Not too bad. I couldn't find ready made curtains for that price. It was pretty easy to sew them as well. I just used a doubled folded 1/4 inch hem line and an inch fold over on the top for the rod pocket.
To attach them I used a $3 cafe curtain mounted above the closet trim and I simply added navy ribbon to make tie backs and pinned them directly to the frame of the closet. I suppose later on I could add real tie backs, but for now the ribbon is cute and easy and free!
Here's a view from her angle. She can't reach the clothes on the hangers yet, but at least she can pull clothes from her dresser.
In one corner I added our old fireplace log bin and put most of her stuffed animals in there. The kids have been having impromptu puppet shows where they hide in the closet. The curtains really prompted the whole puppet show like stage.
Another view looking up into the closet so you can see the cute light I added.
Here's a close-up of the cute gold polka dots.
I like this shot because you can see the stenciled gold polka dots on the wall.
This closet has come along way from what it originally looked like.
