my colorful curtain detail

Well, I went for it!  I need to go back and fill it in a bit, but it's too late to continue tonight.  I'm exhausted!  Wanted to make sure to post the pics.

I chose to go with this color palette.  I liked the variety of colors and thought it was still "light" to brighten up the now sunshine filled room.
I refused to spend a ton of money on this for fear that I would hate the way it turned out.  I went to the sale section and grabbed fabric that worked with my palette.
I have a 70 inch bar to fill, so I made my fabric strips wide enough to take up some space.  I went with 4 inch wide strips.

Almost done!  I'm too tired to fill in all the gaps, but I'll go back.

I purposely cut the fabric strips at different lengths and edges to add texture to the colorful display.  I'm pretty pleased with the final version.  The colors are fun.

Not sure how long I'll keep this color scheme...but at lease I now know it's pretty easy to make!

I also need to mention that I put up the curtain rod all by myself!  This is extra impressive because I have plaster I had to pull out the power tools to drill the holes for the anchor.  I've had to force myself to get comfortable with drilling holes in walls.  Ha!
