For like, evs, I've been trying to find some curtains for the front window. I was at Ikea Saturday so I decided to just buy a pair and if I hated them, I could always return them.
Right now the color in my living rooms are all pretty light, so I wondered what it would look like if I went with something deep and dark - like navy blue.
Here was the result (it's a reenactment with photoshop because I didn't get an actual picture while they were up).
It just felt way too heavy and weighed down the room.
The next day I returned them and swung by HomeGoods since it's right next to Ikea, and found some Cynthia Rowly curtains for half the price of the Ikea ones. I again, figured if I didn't like them I could return them.
But I LOVE THEM.
So here's a badly lit picture of them.
Here's a much better lit close-up.
But they aren't without their imperfection, mainly this:
That fix will be for another post though.
In the meantime, here's a glimpse of my board and batten work in progress - ps I love it.
