Ikea curtains turned custom

This past July I began helping my father-in-law design a suite in his office building. In case you missed it, click here to see the fun paint design we added. Last week, he called me and said he was ready to add some drapes. The budget is small for this project so it was time to get creative...enter IKEA.

This is what we dreamed up...
Ignore the horrible mini-blinds. They have to stay. And the ceiling panels, they stay too.  Remember, it's an office building.

A little crafty sewing gave us a custom look by using these...

and these...

This leftover portion of the curtain panel gives a better representation of Kajsa's true color, cream and navy. (They're NOT white, like they appear on the website.)

These panels are super cute all by themselves but the cream color was lost in the office paint color so that's why they work perfect as only the accent in our design. Cream and navy together are umm, umm good!

They came out great, Dana. I like the detail on the cream stripe for a little interest.
