This project came about because I bought some sweet framed botanical framed prints from Antique Farm House to hang on either side of our bay window in our living room. I absolutely love the botanical prints, but after hanging them I felt that the room needed something extra to balance it out.
I first saw these window treatments a while back on Maria Louise Design and thought they were so pretty! But at the time I didn’t have a room where I thought they’d be a good fit for until now.
If you do make a purchase through one of my affiliate links, thank you so much for helping support my blog! I measured the width of my windows including the trim and cut my reclaimed wood accordingly.
I measured the distance between the curtain tabs so knew how far apart to place the hooks on the wood. They measure 7″ across from the mid points of each tab, so I decided to place the hooks on the wood at 6″ intervals so the curtains would hang nicely but not too tightly.
You’ll notice that it came out to 20.5, which means I had an extra 3 inches on the board.
They add that little extra something this room needed to give it a finished look.
I’m sure I didn’t explain it as well as I could have so any questions you may have will help me iron out any kinks I have in my instructions.
