Today I bought curtains for the kitchen and the bedroom. Chris requested bedroom curtains that would block the street light that comes in the window next to his side of the bed. I went to Target, looking for something that I liked and was affordable...I thought these were good until I got them hung (Also, imagine hard wood floors in this pic, the carpet is coming out this summer):
I think the color is too light...maybe a chocolate brown? Also, standard curtain lengths are 63 and 84 inches and our rods are hung 80 inches from the ground. Other than making my own curtains, how do I over come this? Any suggestions?
These are the before curtains in the kitchen (from our apt. in NC):
And these are the after:
They are okay, didn't love them up and they aren't lined so you can see the sun shining through them so they are going back as well.
I did make one small home decorating improvement that I liked this week (the keys above the fridge):
