I love a good before and after, and I’ve got one for you today! Recently, I was asked to help a client update the new home she and her husband had recently moved into. We’re re-doing the windows one room and a time, and today I’m sharing her Master Bedroom Before & After.

This makeover was for a client who is also a relation-in-law and dear friend. I made window treatments for their former house, and was thrilled to be able to make them for the new house too.
Here’s what their master bedroom window looked like when they moved in. The master bedroom is huge, and the windows in the room are in a nice little alcove. The windows are very nice, and the window treatments just needed an update. They have a blind at the window, which we kept.
Here’s the updated window treatments. This picture is kind of dark, so it’s not showing the color of the walls and the fabrics very well. The walls are a very nice blue color, which matches the embroidered stitching in the drapery fabric.
I love the look of drapery panels over a faux roman valance. The drapery fabric is a nice taupe and blue embroidered linen, and the blue color is repeated in the valance fabric. The valance helps to cover the headrail of the blind, and adds a nice second layer to the window treatments.
We were able to re-use the drapery pole from my client’s old dining room window. We just added new finials that are shorter, so that they would fit into between the alcove walls.
My client and I were both happy with how the window treatments turned out, they’re a nice update for her master bedroom.
I’m joining these parties!
