This makes me wildly excited, though they're darker than what I had in my head. Of course, I can't really articulate what was in my head so here I am with navy velvet curtains.
When I was trying to figure out the height, I almost stopped at halfway between the window and crown moldings, but then realized that if I'm going to encourage others to put their curtains all the way, I should do the same. So I did.
Here are the curtains open:
I really need new blinds, even if it's just quality roller blinds instead of these cheap vinyl ones that came with the house. But they work (for the most part) and currently most roller blinds are recalled for faulty parts and I'd rather get them when there's a lot to choose from.
I haven’t hemmed the curtains yet so they pool on the floor.
Not really a fan of this look unless it’s REALLY pooled and the rest of the room is over-the-top fabulous. My room is definitely not over-the-top and I plan on opening and closing the panels a lot so don’t want to have to bother rearranging them every time so they just look messy. Luckily these curtains came with stitch-witchery type stuff so I can just iron them to the right height right where they are. Love it.
