So my love affair with Black and White continues. And this time, it’s that project I told you I was working on in Lola’s room. One day soon I think I’ll do a post about Black and White and how much I love it and how I never get sick of it in my house.

But for now, I want you to see my latest project. Honestly, I’m unashamedly in love with it. And yes, I am fully aware that sometimes I’m my own biggest fan and I’m fine with that. In fact, I believe everyone should be a big fan of their own work. After all, that’s what makes it their own work. Right? Have I confused you yet?

So here it is, an awning window treatment in (what else?) Black and White stripes…

I was going for the look of a Parisian cafe awning and had envisioned this for this dormer window for months. So, finally I decided to order the fabric and get it done. The fabric I found was perfect for the project. Click here to get some for yourself. The only other things I used were drapery lining, 2 tension rods, and a little grosgrain ribbon.

The total time for this awning was only 2 hours from start to finish. Super easy! Here’s what I did:

I cut the fabric and drapery lining to the width and length I needed for the dormer window, adding allowances for seams and a rod pocket at the top.

Next, I made a pattern for the scalloped edge and cut them out…

Then, I just sewed it up, flipped it inside out, pressed it, and made a rod pocket at the top for a tension rod to slip thru.

Then, I measured how far I wanted it to drop at the scalloped edge, and sewed on a few loops made of grosgrain ribbon onto the back to slip the second tension rod in place.

Here are a few more shots of it…

Look how well it matches her Scenes of Paris art

And here’s a view from the inside…

Do you love it? Lola does…

And of course, so do I. Stay tuned for the next big project I have planned for her room. And I’ll give you a hint: it’s Black and White!
