New Curtains for the Guest Room

I've shown the guest room lots of times. I've had these window treatments up for several months, and haven't really been satisfied with them.  All my other rooms have long panels, so I decided to try and find some I liked for this room.



You've seen the bedding in here too.  I bought it for $35.00 at the Hen's Nest some months ago.  It's perfect for this bed, and I especially like it now for its fall colors.



I surfed the web for a long time looking for panels that would blend in with my colors, and that didn't cost a fortune!  I like to keep within my budget so I don't have a lot of money spent on items, and that allows me to change things out ocassionally.

I finally found some panels I like on the Wal Mart website.  They are due to arrive this week, so hopefully they will work out. I chose Mainstays Hanging Medallion Grommet Curtain ... $18.24/pair.  So around $58.00 with taxes.  Not bad.

Later:
Here they are in the guest room.
When I first opened the package, I thought I wouldn't like them, but once I got them up, I like them more.  I put them up on the regular curtain rods that were in this room.  I'll get new rods soon, but I was anxious to hang them, and didn't have time to shop for more rods.

I'm a little nervous about mixing patterns.





I think I'll keep them.  They are better than the window treatments I had there, plus, I think they will make the room warmer in the winter months.

Snippets of Christmas

I've been rather lazy when it comes to my blog recently.  But I found a new tree that I loved at Lowe's on sale, (I bought the last ...
