Curtains were one of the first things that I tackled in the nursery, other than paint. I picked them out, hung them up, liked them decently well, only to grow tired of them and realize that they really were not doing much for the room. You may remember them:
Blah. Blah. Blah.
However, they were pretty expensive. So, I listed those things on eBay (hoping to at least re-coop some of the money to invest in something else.). Not only did I sell them, I even made a profit. Which were not my intentions at all, but that's hardly something to complain about! And I bought these:
They have every color that I'm using in the nursery: yellow, orange, red, and grey!
They add a little more color to the room, and I'm liking that a lot better! I plan to line them with blackout lining to help reduce noise and light for nap times, and to make the pattern more visible. But since neither of the little ones are sleeping in there currently, it's not too high on the priority list. I'd really like to finish up the nursery/playroom considering that we now have TWO kiddos...slowly but surely.
