Curtains for the foyer...

Since my Mom kept my two oldest for the weekend, I had an itch to stitch. I've wanted to make these treatments for some time now and finally did it Saturday night while watching The Holiday. Great movie by the way.
I am standing in the mini hallway between my foyer and living room{really a family room or great room}. The staircase is to my left as is the dining room. To the right is the garage.


Here's a closer view. You can click on the picture to enlarge. See, you can see the chocolate wall in the dining room.

Here is my view from my computer area. If you missed seeing it, click here.
I am so glad I finally got these made. Actually I was like a sewing machine that night and got my bathroom curtains made also. I just need to get some wood and L-brackets to hang them up.

I love them. What a beautiful job. It makes such a difference in that area. I also love your computer area. The frame with the chicken wire is such a great idea. I think I'm going to try that. Sorry for copying your idea.

I love them! Did you use a pattern or come up with that design? It really makes the foyer look more inviting! Lucky you with a babysitter for the weekend!

We used to have a similar foyer and it was so difficult to make it look inviting. You did a great job! Very warm and a big improvement!

Cute, cute curtains! I have windows like that on each side of my front door as well. I never thought about giving them window treatments until now. I love that movie the Holiday too!
