Keeping in mind her existing blue countertops, Elizabeth went with this fun, blue, seashell pattern wallpaper when she recently re-wallpapered the room. She and her family LOVE the beach and take a trip to the gulf almost every summer. So this pattern was a great choice!
She chose this wide yellow and white stripe to make the awning! As you can see, Elizabeth uses a lot of red in her decorating. She thought this yellow would be a great addition to the red, white and blue color scheme. I agree!
Loving pompom fringe and not being able to find a blue in the right size and color we opted for white with blue rick-rack for our trim detail.
To make the awning I had to consider the width of the window, the distance we wanted the awning to extend from the wall, the height of the awning as it related to the extension, where the scallops fell in regards to the stripes, how long to make the scallops, where to place the trim, how to cut the triangle of the side pieces so the stripe would stay straight, how to mount it to the wall and how to make it keep it’s shape! Whew! (This is why there is no tutorial!)
