Curtains, Drapes and Benches

The newlyweds are in their new home, and the first thing they notice is that the sun is up shortly after 5:30 AM! The bedroom has a cool glass block window over the bed (with NO window cover) and walk out doors that are all glass, with only horizontal blinds. These offer enough privacy, but very poor light control. So off we went to the fabric store and picked up some fabulous drapery fabric and black-out lining. Add to that some pewter rods and hardware in a not-too-skimpy sizing, and you have the makings for some great light blocking. They are on matching tabs, so they can be pushed aside to let lots of light in WHEN THEY WANT!

It is even hard to take a phot of the window/doors, since the light is so bright!
I really love the glass block window above the bed....
Very cool, but needs to be able to draw the curtain to control the light....

Sleep well my favourite young couple!

I also made a quick renovation to an old end table from our house. This is not technically a sewing project, but a staple gun project. I used new ultra-suede, and foam to cover the top of the table, and it now sits in the hallway, ready to sit and tie up shoes and has a shelf to catch shoes or other front door stuff....
