Add decorative fabric panels to the front of your pre-existing armoire for a vintage feel that’s perfect for Victorian-inspired bedroom designs.

Materials
Armoire — existing or purchased
Sheer fabric curtains
Fabric scissors
Fabric pins
Iron
Hem tape
Drill
1/16-inch drill bit
(4 per panel) small cup hooks
(2 per panel) wooden dowels — 3/8-inch diameter cut to width of panel

Instructions

  1. Take regular sheer curtains and cut them to the length of the door panel, plus 2 inches, using fabric scissors
  2. Fold over 2 inches of the rough edge and hold in place with pins. Iron along the fold to make a crisp edge, and then place a strip of hem tape between the fold. Low-heat (synthetic setting) iron the fold a second time, over the hem tape; this will activate the tape and hold the hem together without damaging the fabric

  1. Remove the pins from the fabric

Attaching the Fabric to the Panel:

  1. Using a drill with a 1/16-inch drill bit, drill four tiny pilot holes, one in each corner of the door panel. Screw a cup hook into each hole

  1. Thread a dowel through each end of the curtain, bunching the curtain together
  2. Hang the fabric accent by sliding the top dowel through the top hooks and repeat for the bottom. Cover the screws with the fabric
