Metamorphosis Monday

I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch  for Metamorphosis Monday.  Please click on the link to go see all the wonderful transformations bloggers are sharing.  Thank you Susan for hosting this.

I wanted to show you the drapes we picked out for our family room.  They were just tapestry panels we bought at Lowe's.  The panels go all the way to the floor and there were no tiebacks when we originally purchased them.

My husband wanted to put the same drape on the back door that leads out of the family room, so all of the drapes matched.  I had to trim and hem the drape to fit the nine-light window on the back door.  I looked at all the fabric left from when I trimmed off the drapes and I thought tiebacks!

We had ten drapery panels in  that room and the fabric from just one half of a panel was enough to make tiebacks for all the panels.  I found tassel trim to finish them with at Walmart, it matched perfectly.  Thanks for visiting and viewing my redo.

Great idea and they look like they were bought to match. Wonderful job on them.

That is such a good idea! I have used just the trim, but the fabric adds so much.

Oh Sherry Sweetie...
I love this idea, not a scrap went to waste. You did a marvelous job recycling the trim. The tiebacks are just perfect and make the drapes perfect to the "T". I love the little tassels too. It really fits the texture of the fabric. So pretty.

Thanks for the idea and the tips you have shared today. I am always so tickled to get new thoughts swimming around in my head.

I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next. Please pop over and say hi. I would be so thrilled if you signed up to follow my blog as well.
