I'm finally finished with those stripes and it feels amazing! I was kind of nervous about the vertical stripes because horizontal stripes seem to be so "in" right now.
If you search "striped nursery" on Pinterest, 90% of the stripes on the walls are horizontal, and honestly...those are my favorite.
But then I saw this beautiful picture...
....and even though it's not a nursery or playroom it helped me settle on the vertical stripes. Don't they look so cool?
I hope mine look at least half as cool when I get all the other stuff in the room. Fingers crossed!
Now on to the chevron portion of this post....
....I bought this brown and white chevron from Allegro Fabrics (which I highly recommend!) and I'm going to use it, I'm just not sure if I want it on my curtains like I had originally planned.
These are actually the curtains that gave me the idea to just put fabric on the bottom of my white panels:
Looking at these curtains makes me think that I might need a pattern in a larger scale than the chevron I have for the bottoms of my curtains. Yes?
Maybe something like this (here come the dots)...
...or maybe I'll just leave them white. It might start looking a little busy in there now that the walls are striped.
I'd planned on getting my curtains done as soon as that chevron fabric came in, but now I think I'll be holding off on them 'til most everything else is finished.
So that's the playroom for now.
I made some major, major progress in my hunt for a cheap chair (like $50 cheap) for our bedroom over the weekend and I'll share tomorrow!
