The fabric is Premier Prints Suzani Twill in Harmony/Red from fabric.com. I ordered two yards and cut off about an inch to square it up and then maybe another two inches when I went to hem it. I love when I finish a project and am just left with scraps. I was also able to use leftovers for the backing -- I made shades for our dining room last year and had just enough of the black out fabric left for this curtain if I pieced it together. The seams show through a little bit in the front when the curtain is closed and the sun is shining directly on them. I don't think anyone but me would notice :).
The bookcases are billys from IKEA. Hubby painted the backs of them and I love them. We have a few more things to do in this room -- a friend is going to build in a desk under the window and, despite my husband's half-hearted objections, I'm going to get a piece of sheet metal for a magnetic board on one wall. (he thinks it's going to go the way of the rain gutter bookshelves, which lasted about a year and left numerous holes in the walls). I'm also planning a bit more sewing: fabric baskets to contain the little bits my seven year old loves to collect.
