Curtain Call

Every time a relationship in my life fails,
I change something in my bedroom.
[What is that saying about me?]
This time, it's the curtains.

Forgive me, I forgot to take a before picture!
They were completely flat black panels with white at the bottom...
not so special.
I will photoshop fake it for you!

[seriously, they looked JUST like that]
I couldn't really get any worse than they were, but woah woah I think I did a pretty stinkin' great job with the upgrade.
I wanted something light and airy, so
I bought yards and yards of thin white fabric.
It has pleats & ruffles & is a little wrinkled.
Just like me :)

So here is my little upgrade. I love them!

My flash makes my walls look light, but they are actually a lovely shade of medium grey.
When the sun comes up in the morning, my room is so beautiful!
It makes it look all glowey... like I've used the ortonish effect on it :)

Hey! While I have your attention, do you think I need to move my frame & iron work down further or am I good?

19 love notes:

  1. Oh, Lace, I love them!! They look amazing! And your suggestion about making my own bows for my dresses?? Brilliant! Thanks, lady love!

  2. Beautiful curtains. Personally, I would move everything down just a few inches, so it's not so perfectly centered. But that's just me!

  3. I love white curtains...but alas, mine would not stay white due to my sticky fingered children and my nasty shedding dogs...oh, and yes, I think you should move the frame and iron work down a little farther. Mostly because I'm difficult like that, but partly cuz I really think you should.

  5. LOVE the curtains, seriously teach me to be as creative and crafty as you.
    I think you're good on the frame and iron work, but I probably shouldnt give my opinion on hanging anything as I usually hang them strangely and then just move whatever is under it haha.

  6. Soooo pretty! I do think I'd like the frame down a bit more, maybe a little to the left? But it may just be the photo angle...

    Love the red and pink, very very pretty.
