Simple Ring Top Window Panels

November 26th, 2012

Hello everyone and happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  I ventured out into the stores on Saturday and it was complete madness so I quickly retreated back home to pull out some Christmas decor and also continue working on my daughter’s room which is a slow makeover in progress.

In this space, we’re taking it one wall at a time.  This past weekend I stitched up some simple ring top window panels for her and also reupholstered the windows seat bench.

The geometric fabrics on the window panels and on the reupholstered bench I designed.  I colorized them with her chosen shade of lavender and printed them at Spoonflower.  The cool brushstrokes pattern in lavender and green is a Waverly print I used to make into an accent pillow.
