This is the window treatment I came up with for my daughter’s room. She loves butterflies and has had them as the décor inspiration for her room since she was born. I was originally going to go with simple valances, but she’s had them before. Like I said, they’re simple. I wanted something visually interesting since her windows are what you see as soon as you walk into her room. Then I thought…I’ll just buy a really long curtain panel and use it to drape the frame of the window. I found one that was really cute. I think it was 84″ with a lattice print. Well, it ended up selling out before I fully made up my mind about purchasing it so I decided to just buy a window scarf. This one came in a few lengths. One was around 84″ and I opted to get the longest one measuring 216″. Crazy length, I know! It seems like a lot but it was a great choice though because it fits the window just right… and guess what! The window scarf was only $7! 😀 When I put it up, I eyed it to get the swags even and toyed with the volume.
I’ve had these feather butterflies for 6 years and they’ve held up fantastically and since they’re all attached with wire, they are ubber easy to place and pose. I got them at Michael’s for around $5 and got about 12 in the pack. I’m not entirely sure if they still have them, but they’re a basic concept. I’m sure you can find them anywhere.
So, what do you think? This whole look took less than a half an hour and cost less than $20! What’s your favorite window treatment style?
