DIY Pelmet

I haven’t posted an update on Zoe’s room since I mentioned that we were giving it a makeover. Since then, we painted the room a nice gray color, bought a new rug, changed her dresser’s hardware, hanged window treatments, and built a pelmet box.

With summer time, the days started to last longer and although I love having more daylight in a day, bedtime started to become a bit of a struggle. Zoe likes her room nice and dark for bedtime and the thick blinds we have at home weren’t cutting it. I decided on the Murruta curtains along with the Glansnava liners from Ikea. I liked┬áthe look but I knew I wanted a pelmet box on top.

The hubby built the frame for it using common board from the hardware store and then I was in charge of the upholstery. I used some batting I bought at the craft store along with some fabric I got on clearance for $5/yard at Hobby Lobby. I stapled them to the frame and that was that.

Now to hang it…that was a different story. Let’s just say that we almost got divorced over the hanging part of it. I’m just kidding!!!! ….sort of ­čśë

In short, we ended up using these┬á┬ábut since we didn’t feel it was secure enough, we ended up screwing the pelmet directly to the wall.

All bickering aside, I loved how this project turned out! With a neutral wall color, white bed, and white curtains,  the room was crying for a pop of color.

I hope you like it as much as I do.
