Adding some burlap striping to my family room curtains is my latest project in making over the family room. One of my weekend projects was to update the espresso brown Ikea panels that were hanging in the room.
I figured adding a little burlap would add some texture to the panels along with a graphic effect.
I add a 15” burlap stripe.
And because I like to be unconventional I sewed the top part of the burlap fabric and hot glued the bottom part ((smile)). I had put the sewing machine away and didn’t feel like hauling it back out, guess I was having a lazy moment. But I knew the hot glue will hold. I have window mistreatments (THANK you Nester) hanging in my living room for almost 4 years now and they are still holding beautifully.
So this is my big dilemma with them …
should I leave them as they are, in their rustic looking form
or should I finish off the burlap edge at the top and bottom of the burlap stripe where the two fabrics meet? I was thinking maybe with just a simple white ribbon?
What do you think??
