I have Drape Expectations to thank for saving my sofa! The cushions on my sofa did not age well. Cynthia came over and measured and was able to replace the cushions and my sofa looks great and is extremely comfortable. They do quality work at an affordable price.

Drape Expectations designed, made and hung exquisite drapes in multiple rooms of my house. I had one large area that was an open area, and Cynthia was able to tie the rooms together with drapes that fit all the various window sizes and styles. This project tied together a large area that included a living room, kitchen and dining room. It was done perfectly.
