Pink Satin Curtains and Kenny Rogers Roasters

I had a lot of leftover PINK costume satin from making a mermaid Halloween costume a few years ago. My daughter needed curtains. Imagine the girliest little girl you know. Times that by twelve. That's my daughter. Shiny pink and purple satin curtains seemed perfect! I made them. I even took photos for a tutorial. They were cute and she liked them. (She did think they were a little plain and jewels and sequins and hearts would have been much prettier.)
But... do you see how they kind of glow with the light behind them?  Well, when you look into her room in the morning, the room radiates pink.  It spills onto the hall floor.  It reminds me of a Seinfeld episode when Kenny Rogers Roasters moves in next door to Kramer:
I figured my daughter would actually think it was pretty fun to be living in a pink room.  My husband and I spent about two minutes one day in her room.  When we looked out into the hall, everything looked green.  and continued to look good for a bit after we had left the room.  Now that's just not right.
The curtains came down and I made something else fancy for her out of it.  I'll show you another day.

*Update:  I made the Birthday Maxi Dress from the curtains.  You can see it here.*


  1. Ha ha! That's so funny! Not that you messed up, but just that it made her whole room pink and then everything else looked weird!
    They looked really cute, too bad it didn't work!

  2. haha, that's hilarious! i love that episode of seinfeld :)
