The windows are uniformly spaced across the back of the house, but the room layout is a little off center. This means that the windows in the nursery and dining room are jammed into corners of the room, while there's only a centimeter or so of space to the left of one of the windows in the music room, upstairs hall, and kitchen.
The nursery is pretty cramped to begin with, so I'll probably just add a little balloon shade. I'm torn between two fabrics. One option is plain white batiste, which may be too much white when I finally get around to finishing the crib canopy. The second is a pretty but bright pink flowered voile, which is a little intense for the space.
I'm determined to tackle these curtains soon, but I honestly find the overall number of windows in my house, and especially the number of corner windows completely intimidating. I've been reading and re-reading the fabulous tips,tricks and tutorials from a couple blogs in order to get my nerve up, but I'd welcome any other tips or links to tutorials. These are the tutorials I'm relying on most at the moment:
Ray of Modern Miniatures has a very detailed two part tutorial
Casey makes curtains look easy with her ceiling tile and pin method
I love the thin fabrics and overall lightness of Josje's curtains
John of Merriman Park passed along some very useful information about making fringe and curtain rings.
