We are very happy with the house we bought here in Soldotna. It has just the right amount of space, a nice layout and a cozy feel but we haven't really had time to decorate and add our personal touch. We finally got going and decided curtains would be our first decorating project.
The first step was to cut out the curtain panels from a piece of drop cloth.
We borrowed a large stainless steel sink and a propane burner from a turkey fryer and did the dying outside. It seemed like way to scary of an operation to do in the house.
Salt, dye and a vat of boiling water is the magic trifecta for adding color to your life.
In goes the fabric.
Our friend Andy stopped by so we put him to work stirring. He got a bit of purple dye on his new jeans. Lesson learned: wear play clothes when you come to the Rudstroms.
It's so purply!
We've decided to have a subtle nautical theme in the living area so C.O. made the rod supports from boat cleats.
The curtains add a lot to the living area. It's like they're coming off the wall to give you a big, cozy, purple hug.
