Step 2 - Curtains

The dresser is in place! Yes, minus the 4th nob.
I received my fabric in the mail I ordered for the curtains. I'm not 100% on the color. It looked more yellow online and now compared to the dresser it looks orange??
I placed the fabric over the windows to make sure it would be okay.


I went ahead and made the curtains anyway! I figured I didn't want the curtains to be the exact color as the dresser.  I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
 I'm also working a bit with the de-cluttering. And look! The 4th nob is now on the dresser :)
The curtains are lined with blackout fabric. It's a must with a west facing window and long summer daylight hours.  Both of my boys have blackout behind their curtains. It keeps the light out in the morning and evening hours, when I want my boys to stay asleep or fall asleep. I find it also helps a bit with temperature control. An extra layer for the cold and thicker lining for the hot sun.

Thank you so much for coming over to my blog and entering the giveaway! So happy to have you! And no worries on the multiple entries - I should've made that clearer. I'll just leave one up to make the random number entry easier. :) Hope that's okay and let me know if that doesn't make sense or you have any questions!

And holy cow, you are seriously so talented! I love this fabric and all the things you create. I checked out your etsy shop and those reusable snack bags are so so awesome.
