Yesterday i made some wooden shelves to go above windows, and today i'm making the curtains.
I'm using muslin that i've aged with our favourite stain (coffee and tea, lol). So far so good.
At the moment they are wet and so will dry a little lighter than the photos are showing. I'm also using hairspray to set them and lots of it, so they will permenantly stay as they are.
Using hairspray is all i could think of to fully stiffen the material and it really does work, but is there a better product i could use? Maybe somebody will know.
Im not sure as yet what to place on each shelf. I was thinking potted plants.
Here's what they started off like. You dont see the stitching once they are stained.
The window shelf and curtains.
Wish they would hurry up and dry. I now can't use my desk until they do and should have worked on the glass slabs i usually use... gutted!!!
