I am impatient.
Ask anyone who knows me.
My husband jokes about the time I was a substitute teacher, before kids... when we lived in our first real home.
When I called him at work and calmly suggested that we paint a room a certain color, you could bet money that I already painted it THAT morning. ;) I'd wake up, look at a room, decide on a color, run to the store, and paint it before he came home. :)
When an idea pops in my mind, I want it to come true immediately. I'm SO impatient.
So, after looking at our family room day-in and day-out...
I can picture so many changes in here. Well, for one, the coffee table was changed to a black square one. I want to change the sofas, replace the lampshades, add another fluffy new rug (if and when dear ol' Lucy becomes fully house trained), and... add curtains.
Originally, I wanted crisp, clean... simple. In fact, I convinced Mike of this too. So, when I changed my mind and insisted on curtains, he wasn't on board.
So, I researched. Looked all over the web. Facebook-ed friends to see what size to buy, where to hang. Requested fabric swatches. Hinted. Hinted. Hinted.
And finally, I convinced him enough to take the plunge, with the agreement that we can return them.
These are the Delancey Contemporary grommet curtains from Curtainworks.com. I got several swatches first to check out different curtains... all ivory. Our first preference was a different textured curtain, but the grommets were a bronze color. With all of our main-floor curtain rods being silver, I wanted to stick with that. These have a chrome-color grommet. I think I spent under $230 for all eight 108" curtains. Then I got the rods at Target... cheapest place I found.
Here it is now...
I love how they cozy-up the room a bit, don't you?
Now... the sofas are going to be a tougher sell. Just a tad pricier.... eek!
