The Kid Likes Chevron!

When the gray ticking striped curtains

from Restoration Hardware did not work out,

I wasn’t sure what we would end up with in my son’s bedroom.

At first, I tried some light gray panels from Bed Bath and Beyond.

They were fine but a little bland in there.

Then I started looking on Etsy

I had never bought anything on Etsy before

but I found so many different stores on there that made window panels.

Believe it or not,

at one point I actually thought of making panels myself!


I am not exactly skilled in the sewing department

so I thought it would be best to buy the curtains!

So, I started looking at chevron curtains on Etsy

and when my son walked over to my computer and said,

“Hey, I like the zig zag ones!”, it was a done deal!

I ended up ordering from

Designer Pillow Shop

and the package arrived in only a couple of days!

I paid less than I did for the Restoration Hardware curtain panels

and they look perfect in the room!

The curtains pull the whole room together

and look better than the original ticking stripes!

So, it worked out in the end.

And after all,

what is a blog without a little chevron?!!

Swing by tomorrow

to see how the whole room turned out.

I just have to hang a few pictures

and wait for the sun to come out to get better lighting!

Have you shopped on Etsy before?

Oh, you’re bloggers – of course you have!

What is your favorite Etsy store?
