Bedroom Renovation Featuring Buffalo Check Curtains

Welcome to the 183rd Metamorphosis Monday!

Greetings!  How was your weekend?  I was out of town this weekend but while away I read all the wonderful, heartwarming comments left on the post about how I came to find sweet Max.  Thanks so much for sharing your stories about your fur babies.  After such a sad, difficult weekend in the news, it helped so much to read your uplifting stories.  I really needed that this weekend, a reminder there is good going on in this world everyday, not just the bad that we hear on TV.   Could you use some encouraging, uplifting thoughts and stories, too?   Click on the post titled, A Story of Adoption and Healing and scroll down to the comments.  Beautiful, loving souls visit BNOTP and there’s proof in each comment.  Thank you for all you share!

Buffalo Check Curtains for a Bedroom Renovation:
A few weeks ago I shared my infatuation with buffalo check fabrics.  I added yellow and white buffalo check curtains to the office and they added so much to the room.  They were the perfect finishing touch.  (Addition of buffalo check curtains to the office can be found here:  Buffalo Check Curtains for Home Office)

Suzy, who blogs at Worthington Court recently shared pics with me of her wonderful bedroom makeover and it included beautiful buffalo check curtains she made herself.  Suzy came across her check fabric for just $3 a yard!  Awesome deal!  She bought more than enough to make curtains and decided to also make matching pillow shams, too.

Here’s a Before photo of Suzy’s bedroom.  The bed was simply dressed and the windows were bare except for blinds.  Check out the After!

Beautiful!  Do you see the buffalo check curtains?  There’s an even better picture further down in this post of the curtains…you’ll love how she trimmed them out.  Notice the lamps…they are a change to the room, also.

 I love the soft color scheme Suzy chose for her bedroom.  The blue is so pretty with the cream and the luscious mocha browns.

 Suzy made her shams from the same frabric she used for her curtains.  Shams are so expensive to buy, Suzy wonderful job and saved a bundle!

 In addition to the buffalo check curtains on either side of the bed, Suzy also made them for the other windows in the room, as well.   They look great trimmed out in blue…such a great color combination.

Here’s a side by side comparison of this metamorphosis.   Beautiful transformation!  Doesn’t this make you want to pull out your sewing machine?  I haven’t used mine in so long, I’ll have to read the instruction manual again to remember how to thread it!  Ha!  I definitely want to do some more sewing…this has really inspired me to get busy.

    Suzy is a dear old GF and her bedroom is even more beautiful in person. Her entire home is so beautiful and welcoming.

  35. Great projects – Fave has to be that B&W Table, but also liked the Entry Redo, House For Sale Tour and the clever use of punch bowls for a sewing nook’s organization! Thanks for hosting!

  36. Mary from Virginia says

    What a lovely and peaceful room she has created with mixing fabrics. I too, love the Buffalo Check fabrics and you girls are tempting me to make my own purchase. I can’t sew like Suzy-her window treatments are wonderful. Glad she shared her room with your readers!

  37. Lovely transformation! Thank you for sharing and thank you for hosting. Wishing you a grand week. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  38. Sweet makeover! and thank you for hosting again! xox

  39. I love the new curtains. I have yellow-checked curtains in my kitchen area but they are very tiny checks and I love the look of them. If I tire of them though, I might consider the larger design 🙂

  40. Hi Susan: I love your new bright curtains, and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your post about your kitty Max last week. Take care, thank you for hosting the party today, and have a wonderful upcoming week!

  41. I had blue and cream colored buffalo checked curtains in my bedroom in the 1980’s. When we moved I packed them away and haven’t had a place to use them since but everytime I go through to “purge” things in the attic, I cannot get rid of them. I keep thinking one of my now grown children will want them for a baby boy’s room or another room. They are a classic look. Thannks for hosting your party for us!

  42. Thank you Susan, for hosting Metamorphosis Monday each week. It is so inspiring. I enjoy all your posts and learn so much from them.

    Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  43. Janice Davis says

    What a stunning room! I love buffalo checks and I’m so inspired to decorate a room in my own house with this fabric. Thank you for the lovely pictures and the inspiration they provide. Thanks too for letting us know that Old Time Pottery plans to have online services available in the future. I look forward to hearing who the lucky winner will be of their fabulous give-away. I’ll keep my fingers crossed until then, since my name is in the pot.

  44. Susan, thank you for posting this makeover. I have windows and furniture very much like Suzy’s but have never understood how to place those pillows! I am going to use her “after” photo as a template and do some changing of my own! I’m not a curtain person – I have all wooden blinds in my house but am going to seriously consider those Buffalo checked curtains! I’ll keep you posted.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
