Window "Mistreatments"...

It's official. I am now a member of the Nester's Mistreatment club, and here are the results:
I had these red panels hanging in my dining/living room, and I wanted to add something to them, so I bought this fabric at Hobby Lobby last week.
I originally was looking for toile, but could not find one with the golds, browns, reds, and greens that I needed. I liked this one a lot and it was 30% off. I have to admit I did this in true Nester fashion because I did not take any measurements before I went. I just guess-timated, and it worked out fine. I needed about an inch more of the fringe on each end, but you can't tell it with them hanging up.

The fabric and fringe cost me right at $40 and the panels were something I purchased a long time ago at Wal-Mart or Target. I spent about an hour doing these yesterdayand love the results. In hindsight I would love a print on the top too, but I went with what I already had and it was much more affordable that way.

Super idea! I am lacking in the curtain/drapery dept. I only have blinds and plantation shutters. It ech-echo's a lot in my house.
