ooooooh, the curtains!
These turned out even better than I had dreamed them in my head!
And I always love it when that happens.
So, if you hadn't noticed from some of my other decor,
I'm bringing gold back.
I love the look of it and
the contrast of the silver and gold together
with the lace,
it makes me swoon.
It's so romantic.
When I had originally painted the room,
I was planning on keeping the blue curtains we had
but dying them a grayish kind of hue.
Then I had the idea to go for a dark, dark brown.
Long story short... they ended up a disturbing shade of purple.
So, when I just happen to stumble upon the silver fabric
for $1.50 a yard,
I took that as a sign that I was supposed to enhance our space with it.
The lace was around $2;
the gold fabric was on sale (later found at a different store)
for around $5;
and the backing was around $8
(with my 50% coupon to Joanne's... thanks Jess!).
That's $21, people...
for four custom panels.
I LOVE IT!
What's your take on gold these days??
