I’ve had these silk blend curtains in my Dining Room for awhile, and ever since I redid my Living Room, I’ve been wanting to change them out!
I used to have similar curtains in here, but when I redecorated I went with these White Linen ones. After I made the change the Dining Room curtains didn’t feel right anymore. Does that ever happen to you? You change one room and then the room next to it suddenly needs a little update too? The old domino effect!
Anyway, that meant another trip off to Ikea! Fun for me, not so much for my husband… Oh well, he lived! haha. I grabbed a couple of pairs of these Lenda Curtains. You just can’t beat Ikea for curtain prices. Even when I had my shop, I couldn’t buy curtains at wholesale prices, that were cheaper then Ikea’s retail prices!
Okay, admittedly when I got up on the ladder, I noticed that my lack of cleaning skills were pretty evident here. Just keeping it real! After a bit of dusting though, and after ironing the new curtain panels, I was good to go.
Here they are! Nice and light and Lineny (is that a word?). In addition to the texture and sheen, matching the curtains in the other room better, there is also a lot more light coming in to this room now. The other drapes were lined, and these aren’t, and it made quite a difference. They’re a bit long, but I do like a little puddle on my draperies so I may leave them like that. Now that the Holidays are over, are you guys working on any projects around the house?
