New Window coverings

Since the smell of spring is in the air, I wanted to change my living room colors.  I am loving the color blue lately and when paired with chocolate brown it looks fantastic.  The other day I saw these gorgeous drapes with chocolate, green and blue striped colors.  I wanted them sooo bad.  But, the price was way too steep.  Sooo, I thought I would make them.  When I added up the price of four metres of similar fabric, it was still too expensive.  Then I had a "Sell This House" moment.  Sheets!!  I would re-purpose sheets into living room drapes. I found these beautiful robin's egg blue sheets and all I had to do was cut the flat sheet in two, hem one side of each panel and the bottom.  Taadaa!!!!   I actually finished a project.  I did! lol

I even used left over sheet material to cover a pillow :)  and make a new pillow with pattern fabric.  I was even doing this when my fav show was on... Nascar!

I love the way the living room is shaping up. It looks very fresh.

I even re-did my mantel with some blue, white & green accents. I still need to paint the family sign, black I think.

What do you think?  Have you changed your living room colors this spring?  Are you going to try a different color scheme.  Let me see what you are doing as well.  Happy Spring!!!
