Well, my son’s room is painted!
Unfortunately, I hit a little snag in my decorating plans.
The gray and white ticking stripe curtains that I ordered from
didn’t really work out.
The grommets made the curtains hang weird
on the rod that was already in place.
See the way they are all bunched up and won’t even move?
Sure, we could probably hang the rod a little differently but
there is no room to come any lower.
We absolutely can’t go any higher,
which brings up the other problem…
Yes, the curtains are a little too short.
Just enough to make them look ridiculous.
His old curtains were 84 inches too
so I don’t know why these are so off…but they are.
So, now I am trying to think of
what else will work here.
We are so disappointed
because the ticking stripe would have looked great
with the blue.
I am either going to get a solid color
like a light gray or white
or actually try to make curtains myself!
What a dreadful thought that is!
For the average person, it would be pretty easy,
especially since I will probably use clip rings to hang them.
that is way out of my comfort zone!
I will keep you posted on what we decide.
In the meantime,
I am hanging pictures and accessorizing the rest of the room.
Have you tried sewing your own panels?
