I wanted to put a blind in the new bathroom just to soften it a bit. I had decided on toile de jouy and black was the obvious colour to choose. I found that Annie Sloan did one and a YouTube video showed her making a blind with a co-ordinating fabric. Since I live a long way from anyone who stocks her fabrics I decided to pay Blendworth Fabrics a visit as I have often found beautiful fabrics there at such reasonable prices. Well I found exactly what I wanted and here is the finished result.
It didn't take long to make at all and I am so pleased with it. The toile was £11 a metre and the 'gingham' was £6.50 a metre and they are really good quality too (suffice to say that the Annie Sloan material was a lot more expensive but then you are paying for her name).
We have a new member of the family since Sunday - a gorgeous new puppy but I shall show you photos of him on my next post.
