So here's the fabric I've chosen - a curtain (Sarita) from Ikea - a bargain at just $15/pair (in the US, just $7/pair).
I adore this colour and of course it works perfectly with the theme.... but unfortunately, that's not the colour that they actually are. Here's what they look like in daylight.
And at night, they look more like this (without the daylight streaming through, of course!). A sort of chocolatey brown colour.... not the look I wanted at all.
But as I've already opened the packaging to find this out, I have to find a way to make this work. So once again, I'll be reaching for my Piñata inks to change the colour of the LEDs.
Here's how the curtain looks with the white LEDs.
Now lets take another look after they are coloured with Passion Purple Piñata ink.
It's difficult to see with the daylight streaming through the shutters but it is much better!
So, once again my craft supplies are coming to the fore. They are really keeping me on budget!
There will be more decorating ideas to come soon. Hope you'll check back to see what else I come up with.
'Til nest time.....
