Greek Key Trimmed Curtains

I've always been a huge fan of IKEA curtains.  I especially love the Ritvas.  I think they are a great bang for the buck.  They really look much more expensive than they are, to me anyways.  The texture is great and they are neutral enough to go with pretty much any room.  In fact I already have several pairs in my living room.  So when it came time for curtains in our bedroom, I decided to go with Ritvas again, but I didn't want them to be quite so plain.  



I've always loved this greek key trim from Hobby Lobby (they have multiple colors in the store), but never had a place for it.  I've seen lots of other people use it for curtains, pillows, etc. and I think it really adds a nice detail.  So I grabbed some on my last Hobby Lobby trip and got to work.  

This was a super easy project and instantly made the drapes look more custom.  I just stitched the trim on the leading edge of both panels and that was it.  If you can sew a straight line you're good to go for this project!





Did you notice my new chair in the corner?  I picked it up at an estate sale last weekend and I love the unique lines of it.  My husband isn't sold on the green velvet, but I actually really like it.  I may reupholster it in a graphic black and white print to make it a little more modern and win him over. :)


If you want to try this project, but don't have a Hobby Lobby near you or you just want a broader trim, you can try using greek fabric like I did for these curtains.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I love simple white curtains with a trim! That whole little corner set up is so petty! Love the dark walls.

Great IKEA ! Amazing what we do with their products. I think the chair would look stunning in graphic black and white.
