Drape and Swag

A window treatment that is trendly today, is to drape and swag fabric loosely over a decorative pole or rod as seen in this picture of my master bathroom. 

Instead of using a pole or rod, I purchased a set of tiebacks on clearance for a couple of dollars a piece. (TIP:  If you want to achieve this look, Hobby Lobby currently sales cast iron tie backs that are on sale frequently.  They can be painted any color to match the decor.) 

I purchased a long ivory scarf and drape it on the tiebacks letting it pool on the tub surround.  The shorter scarf is actually a gold sheer panel that I had from another project.  I let the hems out and ironed them down.  I purchased the eyelash trim at Hobby Lobby and stitched it on by hand.  And there you go, an easy elegant window dressing.  (Tip: If you have 3 extra sheer panels that are the same color, take out the hems, iron down and sew panels together, top to bottom.  This will be used as your scarf.  Just make sure that the seams where they were sewn together are draping on the tiebacks.  This way the seams will not be visible.  You will probably have to make adjustments to the middle panel, depending on the size of your window.) 

An expensive window treatment that packs quite a punch!
