Awhile back we were lucky enough to obtain numerous pieces of truly beautiful 1930's decorative furniture with professionally hand painted floral sprays and bouquets, delicate rose buds and luxurious pink roses.
One of the pieces was a small dressing table and matching seat/stool. The previous owner had added a pair of modern curtains to the "curtain track". Unfortunately they could not do justice to the beauty of dressing table so we removed them, planning to replace them with something more in keeping with the style and age of the set.
Finding just the right vintage fabric was not easy but eventually we did come across the charming old Sanderson design which ticked all the boxes!
It has a soft, pale pistachio green and white striped background with graceful sprays of pretty foliage, pink roses and small yellow and pale pink flowers.
The colours in the fabric work perfectly with the dressing table colours and flowers.
I made a pair of curtains just the right width to add the required fullness and allow the owner to close the curtains when the drawers are not in use.
A "rufflette" was painstakingly sewn, gathered and attached to cover the "curtain track" even when the curtains are open- just as it would have been originally.
I think you will agree that the result is very pleasing indeed!
