Since changing the sofa cover from dark grey back to white the still unfinished living room curtains look a little heavy.
I found some billowy curtains in Soft Belongings I like but at over $100 per panel I’m going to look around a bit for something cheaper.
Headed to these stores: Home Goods, Marshalls, Ross, and TJ Maxx.
Home Goods has a nice embroidered panel in an off-white color. I would need 4 panels but alas there was only one.
The Cynthia Rowley eyelet would have been nice and a good price but at only 84 inches long they would be too short. Same for the Laura Ashley curtains.
I found some unpriced pure-white plisse panels at Marshalls. They are 96 inches long and $30 for 2 panels. I bought 2 sets. I checked the final two stores but found nothing better.
When I got home I took down the still unfinished curtains I started in 2014.
On the front window I hung the white panels with clips.
Behind the sofa I hung the curtains using the tabs that were sewn into the back of the panel.
They are the perfect length when hanging from the sewn in tabs and I think they actually look better this way.
Unfortunately the stark white fabric doesn’t really look great with the creamy white sofa, Revere Pewter walls, and natural linen shades.
Naturally my plan is to dye the new curtains. The color I’m going for is close to the shade tone. The question is do I try to tea dye the fabric or buy some commercial dye.
Do you change up your décor with the seasons?
