Adventures in Decorating: The DEETS of The Master Bedroom Mini-Makeover

hang curtains from the ceiling.

Visual Trick In the master bedroom, the only spot for the couple's queen-size bed was under a narrow window. A valance and draperies add 8 inches to either side of the window, making it appear wider than the bed and giving the space balance.

    Whit! This is for you!

Sunroom Windows Forgo curtains in a sunroom filled with light. Instead, install painted wooden trim around the outside of windows for a decorative touch.

    Really lovely!

Great tip!!!! Buy tablecloths to use as draperies....much less expensive, already hemmed, meant to launder often, and many patterns and colors available! 60x84 or buy 60x104 so you can hem them AND still have matching fabric left over for pillows or other coordinating pieces!

Don't toss out curtains you love just because they don't fit your new windows or need to be replaced. Instead, cut and sew them into panel-style window shades with rod pockets. Tension rods hold the shades in place and make them easy to change or remove. This trick also works to make outdated fabrics or drapery styles look trendy again.

    Love the idea and you can change the panels easily when you want a change.

Customize window treatments with text. Print letters in your favorite font and transfer them to the window shade by tracing the letters with a fabric marker. This technique also works with simple clip art illustrations.
