Our playroom re-do project is nearing an end (reveal coming soon!). One of my favorite elements in the room are the pom-pom curtains that were inspired by these PB Kids curtains here. They’re actually all over the place right now. We have high ceilings in our house, so I’m always having to buy 96 or 108″ curtains so I was looking about $300 if I wanted to outfit the playroom in the PB Kids ones. Ugh.
Next step – finding pom pom trim. I knew I wanted yellow, but finding the right hue of yellow was tough. I didn’t want too pale, but I definitely didn’t want mustard yellow either. Since none of the local fabric/craft stores carried yellow pom trim, I took my chances online and ordered 12 yards from Dove Originals for $14.95 ($22 with tax/shipping), which was more than I needed for the project but I’ll find a use for the leftovers! Update: you can also get these trims at Amazon (with free shipping).For this project, the only problem was that they were tabbed and I didn’t want that look for the playroom. Simple solution – cut the tabs off and sew a hem.
I had every intention of doing things the right way and sewing the trim on like a professional. But then I started and got bored, so I whipped out the glue gun. And that sped things up considerably!
*Note: To answer the question on the paint color, here’s a picture of the label on the can. Also, the color is a little brighter than it appears in the pictures above (still working on my photography skills!). Here’s another shot of the same room, from the post on the wood wall arrow.
