If you read my post about our DIY pallet headboard, you know that curtains are becoming an issue in our house, haha. Well, just prior to making the headboard, we got some new window treatments for our dining/living room. Correction: I bought 3 different sets of curtains/panels for our living room, because they were all on sale for just a few more hours, and I didn't want to miss out on the price, but knew
I would Kit would want to see options before making a decision. Don't worry, I returned the other two... mostly
So here is what we ended up with:
They're Bamboo Panels from Pier One. The rods are from Lowes.
These are the curtains I wanted (dead serious). Also, from Pier 1. Kit nixed them immediately. I knew he would.
Here's a secret: I only returned 3 of the 4 panels I bought of this orange goodness. I kept one panel for myself... just cause.
I know the ones we settled on look great, are very adult, and will go with most decor. More importantly, they slide easily and keep the right amount of light in and out of the house.
Here's the curtains we had prior (on the right of the photo). I thought they were super cute, but we couldn't slide them open or closed. Most of the time they ended up thrown over the rod. Pardon the crazy photo of Ivy in my character shoes. I couldn't find any other photo of the curtains!
We chose to mount the curtains higher than the window (as is the decor trend right now) because they make the windows/room look bigger. We're super happy with this purchase. This is one project where my husband said, "You should probably blog about this." I love him.
