We are a family with way too many books so this helps to keep them contained in a usable space - the normal books on the left bookcases where there is more direct light from the window, & our many leather bound antique books on the right where the fade less our of direct light.
We keep our cards in IKEA boxes on the shelf & I shared how I 'mapped' the boxes to make them fit in by decorating-with-maps
Because we only use a single curtain at that window (it is private) , the task was easier.
Instead of starting from scratch & buying lining, I decided to use the plain cream curtain as the lining - just shortening it as it has always been too long behind the desk.
I washed the cream curtain & when dried, I started to attach the lovely new map fabric to it - a bit unconventional but it works very well in this instance.
The map fabric panel was the right width with a little to spare on each side; this was first sewn on the top (carefully to avoid the hook band) - pinned & then sewn in place.
The whole process was made much easier by using the original curtain & just shortening it as the cream curtain was too long behind the desk.
I am very pleased with the end result because our study / library is all about our many travels & expeditions
