This is a conversion of a Historic Garden Home project. Unfortunately, the seller did not call me in until after they had painted everything white. White walls, white molding, white everything! What's a girl to do? Why, add some inexpensive window treatments,of course!. The panels from JC Penney's (on close-out) were less than $15 a piece. The rod was a 3/4" dowel that I cut myself and put up with large hooks.
I painted this one in-set wall myself with the ever-popular Latte by Restoration Hardware. I wish they would have painted the whole unit in Latte and left the molding white. Oh well.
I used a lot of red to infuse some color and drama.
All-in-all, I spent less than $150 on window treatments and I installed them myself. This is also a another case for using a professional photographer.
