The Kid Likes Chevron!

When the gray ticking striped curtains
from Restoration Hardware did not work out,
I wasn't sure what we would end up with in my son's bedroom.

At first, I tried some light gray panels from Bed Bath and Beyond.
They were fine but a little bland in there.

Then I started looking on Etsy
I had never bought anything on Etsy before
but I found so many different stores on there that made window panels.

Believe it or not,
at one point I actually thought of making panels myself!
I am not exactly skilled in the sewing department
so I thought it would be best to buy the curtains!

So, I started looking at chevron curtains on Etsy
and when my son walked over to my computer and said,
"Hey, I like the zig zag ones!", it was a done deal!

I ended up ordering from
and the package arrived in only a couple of days!
I paid less than I did for the Restoration Hardware curtain panels
and they look perfect in the room!
The curtains pull the whole room together
and look better than the original ticking stripes!

So, it worked out in the end.
And after all,
what is a blog without a little chevron?!!

Swing by tomorrow
to see how the whole room turned out.
I just have to hang a few pictures
and wait for the sun to come out to get better lighting!

Have you shopped on Etsy before?
Oh, you're bloggers - of course you have!
What is your favorite Etsy store?



  1. Never thought of ordering panels from etsy. Good idea. I can't wait to see the reveal.

  2. love love love!!! Those are perfect. I'm about to get a little chevron on my porch too :-)

  3. Fun! So true - what is a blog without a little chevron! hahaha

  4. That boy has style! I think I like them better than the ticking stripe, too! Anxious to see what else he chose for his room!

  5. Great taste knows no age! My six year old knows exactly what he likes too which is really fun.
