Up with the New!

A week off from work for Christmas break for both of us has resulted in some free time, which we have been able to put to good use getting some projects accomplished that we have been meaning to get around to for a few weeks now.  One of our projects was installing the hardware and hanging curtains in the den. Here's a before & after shot, which I hope to get more of now that we got a Nikon D90 Digital SLR camera from Santa!
Here's the before...

...and after.

Pretty amazing what a little bit of ironed and hemmed (in the case of the shears - which we got from Ikea) curtains will do for a bare, lonely wall.  We decided to hang 'em high for a more luxurious effect. What do you think?


  1. Looks fantastic, Katie! I love how much larger your window looks now. Have fun with the new camera!

  2. Katie, it's funny how our living room curtain set up is almost identical! I have white sheers and brown panels, all from Ikea. Looks great, I like how it is higher, it does open things up.

  3. These shears are from Ikea, but the curtains are from JCPenney, I think - they have some pretty good window treatment sales there sometime, if you've never checked it out. I think it was buy one for full price, get the second for $1.
