Covid Project II


Installing the swag and jabot window treatments on our bedroom project was fairly easy, even using the same holes in the walls to screw the L brackets into from the old, same-style window treatments. Here's one ready for bracket installation. You can see the white coverlet (re-purposed from the linen closet) and the new bedskirt.
The supplies are simple: L brackets, hammer, screw driver, pencil, measuring tape and ruler, and of course, screws. The window swag and jabots are stapled onto a fabric covered board. Careful measuring was important to be able to use those same wall holes.
After installing them I "trained" the folds of the jabots, and checked the folds of the swags. 

We are more than pleased with the final result. Amazing what two people can do during this pandemic!
My recently completed Cream and Sugar Quilt at the foot of the bed goes perfectly with the new fabric!
The bed on the floor between the two dressers belongs to Barley, the 106 pound Golden Retriever. Oh, and his whale toy, too.

We loaded all of the old items: window treatments, pillow shams (2 sets), bed skirt, old coverlet and duvet cover, into the back of the SUV, and took them to a local Thrift Store.
I am SO glad this project is over and done! I'm grateful we could do it ourselves and can enjoy our 'new' room. It's peaceful and relaxing.
