Even Allen likes these!
Last week we removed a seat from our couch and picked up a couple of ottoman bench type storage trunks to go in its place. Allen picked them out, they are black and white and match the contact paper I put on the ends of the kitchen island. But since the corner was showing, it looked a little plain and I felt like it needed SOMETHING…
So I went wandering down the curtain aisle at Walmart with sheer curtains in mind. But then I found these! They match the ottomans just about perfectly! So I picked up 2 pairs of panels (40″x84″ each). Then I cut each one in half and hemmed the side. I don’t want to necessarily be able to close the curtains all the way, I just wanted more of an accent for the sides of the windows. I tried to get a good shot before Charlie messed up the couch! But she was pretty quick!
We hung them on tension rods inside the valances. So if we decide to take them down, we can always do so and there’s no evidence they were even there! Allen had the idea to kind of tuck them into the strings from the blinds to hold them to the side. (Good idea on his part!) So now they don’t blow in the wind like crazy!I also made all these new pillow covers and I’m really liking them! I found all the fabric at Walmart also (they have some really good deals on fabric).
And I’m actually proud of myself for sticking to some sort of “color scheme” instead of just being all across the rainbow! -Like I normally am!
