how to Treat your Windows

15 Sep

Maine Cottage fabric is 25% off by-the-yard this month. Yes, it’s a great sale and the perfect time to tackle some home decorating projects. One of the most popular uses for Maine Cottage fabric is to create custom window treatments: curtains, drapery, shades, blinds, valances – even shower curtains. Our fabrics are the perfect weight and construction – in exclusive Maine Cottage colors and artwork.

If you’re a DIY sewing kind of person, then you know how to measure, select fabrics, and install. Most of us, however, are not DIY gifted, so finding a good seamstress is the way to go for guidance from beginning to end.

Finishing details: sparkling drapery hardware by Rejuvenation in Portland, Oregon

The availability of curtain and drapery hardware is widespread and your seamstress may have recommendations. We poked around online and found that Rejuvenation and Restoration Hardware are two excellent sources for high quality period hardware in styles and finishes to suit nearly every taste. Anthropologie has some unusual, arty finials for yet another approach. All three have websites and catalogs by request. Bottom line: have fun!
