Refresh the Room: Swapping Curtains

Pin it button big

A few weeks ago, we were having issues with our living room windows, and one of the most popular suggestions was to get rid of the dark curtains. So we finally did, and we couldn't be more pleased! Our living room now gets great light in the morning, and it looks less like a movie theater (thank goodness). Take a look at the before after the jump...

Before the Big Curtain Swap!

We got tired of the look of the sheer liners, especially the tab tops. Instead of buying new ones, we snipped off the tabs, folded it over, and sewed a pocket for the back curtain rod. Also, the old blue curtains had tab tops that kept snagging on the curtain rod or getting stuck on each other, making it difficult to open and close them, so we opted for grommet drapes this time around.

A big thank you for all of your suggestions!
