|This naked windows need some curtains!|
Eggplant fabric that would be suitable for curtains was kinda difficult too.. I'm like gimme a break! But finally on our shopping trip I talked about here where we found fabric for pillows, my mom and I found wonderful eggplant fabric for curtains! And for around $8/yard not too pricey. It was even wide enough to cut in half lengthwise and get 2 panels since we weren't really going for curtains to shut out light but rather as a decoration. Mom offered to make the curtains for me with her sewing machine :) I probably would have just tried to do something makeshift so this was a relief.

I did a lot of measuring and mom did some sewing and voila! Curtains! Long, beautiful, statement making curtains! (Also notice our new floor lamp, from Homegoods of course)
Ignore those awful looking cords coming from the tv... ugh, hopefully those will be gone soon with some wireless device Eric discovered online. I'll do a post soon about the living room pillows you are getting a sneak peak at in some of these pics. It was another mom & daughter collaboration.
One more shot (I took this pic before we had our rug) because I was just elated to finally have curtains and for under $80 for 6 panels, that's not too shabby :)
