Explore Pelmet House, Curtains and more!

This is a no sewing required curtain tutorial. Because of scale issues, if you want curtains with a realistic looking fall, it is not possible to make them functioning, i.e. able to be drawn open or closed. This tutorial will show you how to make an open pair. They do not hang from a rail but are fixed to a solid pelmet.


Rug Fail and Fix… and Pelmet Boxes

add a piece of fabric stripping to top of curtain, doesn't even need to be as squared off as this one, but its nice and simple and can be done with a staple gun

(pelmet box 2) window cornice, made from foam board & a cheap ($1.50) curtain rod. This is def what I'm doing over the sink window... (I'll need s'thing much more beefy for our panoramic window :/)

Stunning, striped upholstered pelmet shaped into a bay window with long dress curtains and functional Roman blinds. The stripes are beautifully showcased on the neat pelmet and the matching side blinds. One of my favorite installations if I'm honest. Gorgeous! Adele
