Q: I am trying to decide what to do with some drapes in my nursery. The window itself is huge and the drape panels we bought hit about halfway between the bottom of the window and the floor—but they look kind of, well, stupid right now at that length. I was debating either (a) adding a matching solid color piece at the bottom of the panels, to ground them, or (b) abbreviating them to make the drapes hit just the bottom of the sill. But I can't decide which would work better, especially since the window is so tall! Any tips?
Sent by MarieEditor: I love the way long curtains look so my vote would be to add a panel at the bottom. Readers, what do you think Marie should do - hem or add a panel?
