Over the past few years I have shared with you many things I have created, but I haven't showed you what I "Really Do".
What I mean, is what I do for my
Today I thought I would share with you
some of my custom drapery creations.
"Creations by Sherry Lynn"
has been my custom drapery business for about 16 years.
I love designing and creating things for my clients.
Here's what I have been up to the last few weeks....
This was a very large window.
I added some decorative elements.
I chose to use a large tassel
to hang from the finials on the ends of the rod.
The client had a beautiful chandelier
hanging from the center of the ceiling.
Because the window was very wide,
I shirred the cornice fabric to give it some additional texture.
I also selected a beautiful trim with crystal beads.
This window was in a master bathroom.
I choose to use a beautiful embroidered faux silk fabric.
The walls were painted a pale blue. The clients had inherited an oriental rug which had a variety of shades of blue.
The tassel trim added the perfect touch!
In addition to the bathroom
the clients had two identical windows in the office.
These simple empire style window treatments
were exactly what she wanted.
I love adding to trim to the drapery treatments.
I think it takes the drapes from ordinary to extra-ordinary!
These last two rooms were just installed this morning.
This window treatment was for a client who is a recent widow.
She wanted something bright and cheery
for her living room window.
I added a striped fabric cut on the bias.
This was the perfect coordinate for the floral fabric.
Now this last job took some work.
The window was so large I could not fit the entire window
into the picture.
The bay window had FIVE sides to it!
Each cornice was made separate.
The jabots covered where the cornices were joined together.
Here's the other end of the window.
It was a total of 27' of cornices.
I was nervous the entire time the installation was taking place.
One wrong measure on my part, and all the angles would be off.
The cornice had to go up in one piece.
Because the window treatment was going right up to the ceiling,
all the jabots and drapery panels
were attached before we put it up.
Early this morning I had to recuit my two boys to help with the install. This is the first time I have needed them to help.
(I had to buy them lunch after!)
To get the cornice installed, it took my installer, myself and my two sons to hoist the cornice 9' up to the ceiling.
Once the bay was installed I let out a BIG sigh of relief.
The 4' arched cornice over the sink was a breeze to intstall!
I don't know why I haven't shared with you my drapery creations.

I recently did a few rooms for her
and she was so sweet to post about them!
I'll be sharing this with the following sites.
