Getting creative with the floral red and gold hues of Tropical Garden.

I’m always amazed at DIY’ers. Like this customer we received a testimonial from, who so impressed us with her innovative twist on a Tropical Garden bedspread.

Matthia from Gloucester, MA:

Hi, we did receive the bedspread and it was turned into a patio door curtain by attaching clip on rings to it and hanging it on a decorative rod. It looks very nice and much cozier than those plastic office looking patio panels that seem to be the only alternative.

 In case you’re as blown away as I am and are curious to know how she did it, here is how:

I just bought a decorative rod and clip rings and hemmed all 4 edges of the spread so the length would be right. I do have a 5 foot patio door, not sure how it would fit on a 6 foot one, but  I think it would still be fine as there is plenty of fabric.

Isn’t that simply genius?

Tropical Garden has a distinct “tropical” fair with its red, gold, amber colors and will bring a touch of the sultry sweltering vibe into any decor.
