Colorful Laundry Room Window Treatments

Are you wondering why these cute curtains are all tied up?

Well, there’s a perfectly good reason and I’ll explain in just a bit.

First I want to show you these adorable, BRIGHT & FUN window treatments.

The first window treatment features a lime green chevron for the body with a fuchsia cheetah print cuff finished with a bright turquoise ruffle along the lower edge. The curtain is lined with regular lining but I included a chevron band along the upper back side so the lining wouldn’t show when as the treatment “drooped”.

The same chevron fabric was used as the lining for the second window treatment, which will be hung on the exterior laundry room door.

This window treatment features the fuchsia cheetah as the main fabric, a band of chevron along the lower edge and a fun turquoise beaded trim detail.

Now, why am I tying up window treatments and pinching them with clothes pins?

Have you ever worked with window treatments that are a bit set in their ways and need to be encouraged to do what you want them to do? Well, here’s a great solution.

In this case, the fuchsia cheetah we used on this window treatment is actually an upholstery weight fabric and a bit thick. Once the window treatments were finished, I hung them from a rod I had at home, placed the folds as I’d like them to be, pinched their little noses with painted and glittered clothespins and tied them up with scraps of fabric.

Tip: If you try this at home, choose a fabric a bit less prone to “shedding” than this one.

Here you see window treatments in training. Encouraged to be well-behaved little curtains.

The end result is a bright and fun cuffed curtain for the laundry room window…

 and a pink, cheetah lover’s delight, complete with turquoise ties for the back door! (Look closely and you can see my assistant – aka youngest daughter – holding the curtain for me to photograph.)

Isn’t this a great way to add some bright and fun color to your laundry room?

And way less expensive than a turquoise washer and dryer.

Oh, but how cute would that be?

    Beautiful laundry room window treatment! I just posted my laundry room reveal, but not with window treatment, as I need sunshine to come to dry my hand wash and dry clothing items. Love these though.
