Checkerboard Race Flag Curtains

I redecorated the kids rooms several times when they were growing up. The biggest chore was staining and varnishing the hardwood floors, but the result was stunning and definitely worth the effort.

Davy had one red wall, the wall opposite the door, with two large windows. The other three walls were white. He had a loft full-size bed with black chalkboard guards, with a checkerboard pattern running across the top.

His walls were adorned with all kinds of street signs I bought on eBay and Craigslist. I made his curtains because I couldn't find any that were exactly like I wanted. I used a big checkerboard pattern for the valance, and a small checkerboard pattern for the curtains.

It wasn't until I started working on them that I realized that pattern causes vertigo! I was sick to my stomach by the time I got done, but they looked so good hanging in his room. I wanted his room to be perfect, so I'm glad I made him those curtains … but I don't think I'll be making any more checkerboard curtains … ever!

Even if you don't live in the Evansville area, please keep an eye out for this car. It was traveling South on I-69. It could have been coming from and going to anywhere. The Sheriff's office will follow up any ANY lead.
