I painted the walls “young sprout” and am just loving this space!! First, let’s recall the old version:
I know it’s not everyone’s style taste, but I LOVE it!
Then cut out the circle. Put the grommet piece with the raised middle edge underneath like so: And then just snap the other grommet piece on top – really, you’ll hear/feel a “snap. And voila, done! The raw material edge is hidden inside the grommet. Here’s a view from the top. Makes me look I know what I’m doing – grommets just look so finished. A helpful hint – use an even number of grommets – otherwise when you thread the curtain onto your rod, both ends won’t curve in (trust me on this one). For a full panel (the whole width of your material) you’ll want 8 grommets. For a half panel, 4. I bought mine with my 40% of coupon at JoAnns back by the home decor fabric. So go grab some and fancy up some material you love into curtains – you can do it!
