You remember our new bedroom curtain, right? The one I scored on crazy sale that was such a gorgeous addition to our room. Not.
I HATE being wrong….I really, really, loath it.
But this curtain, it’s all wrong. The shiny texture is wrong for the room, the length cuts off the height of the room and all around it was just a bad snap decision.
Which brings me to an important realization: While in my dreams I am some celebrity home designer, reality begs to differ. Apparently I’m just an average person trying to decorate a home so that it is comfortable, beautiful and functional. I’m going to make a few mistakes, and before I go making any other purchases, sale or none. I’m going to do my best to really think about how it impacts the space.
So let’s get back to the shiny-short mistake at hand. The one that I couldn’t look at every night any longer. The one I HAD to replace. So we did.
Of course, there were some grumbles from the labor force. Not that I had any right to hush them…after all it was my brilliance that bought the first curtain. Thankfully my husband was feeling extra patient this week. So a few more inches and a rich canvas material later we had ourselves the RIGHT window covering.
Looking at these pictures the difference seems night and day to me….but what do you think? Was it worth reinvesting? Any ideas for how to use the old curtains?
