Playroom Progress: Curtains & Pillow

Happy Hump Day! I'm happy to say that we are completely unpacked and have groceries in the house again. Yay! I'm going to call this week successful and go take a nap. Haha!
We have been making good progress finishing up the last of the playroom projects! Remember when I posted about some great finds at Lowe's? That same day, I ran through the curtain section and found these curtains which are perfect for the playroom!  I also found these curtain rods on clearance for $7 each! We removed one of the finials off of each rod so they could butt up next to one another in the corner. 
The green we used on our striped wall is slightly yellow-green, so finding things that coordinate with it has been a bit of a challenge. These curtains go great and even incorporate the blue at the top! Yay!
The curtains weren't quite long enough and don't come in 95" length, though. Sad! My friend Betsy who runs a sewing business was able to let out the hems and attach some cute pom pom trim that I found at Joann's to make them the perfect length! She did a great job! Isn't the trim adorable?!
I also hired Betsy to make a custom pillow for the chair. I doodled what I wanted onto paper and she made it happen! 
I borrowed the throw blanket from the living room for this chair, but I really want to get this teal pom pom throw or this blue pom pom throw from Target for in here. I'm on a pom pom kick, what can I say? :)
I'm loving how it's all coming together! Jeremy and I built the book ledges (see our playroom plans here), so now I just need to fill, sand, and paint them so we can get them on the wall. Then, we'll tackle the desk area and some artwork for the striped wall and we'll be done!

  8. I'm loving those curtains! We went for a similar colour on the walls of my little girl's nursery but I'm not happy with the curtains we've chosen. Something like this would be just perfection. Oh dear! hubby is not going to be happy once I inform him we are getting them changed ;)
