Yesterday Phoebe and I spent some time putting up new curtains in the girls' room. We still have boxes to unpack and organizing to do from our move. But one of the things that most wanted to do in there was get rid of the drapes.
Part of the reason we haven't done anything with them is because at first Phoebe liked them...actually she liked the pull cord. She asked if I could just make some curtains that could go on the drapery hardware. Yes, I can.
A few months later, as most tweens do, she changed her mind and didn't like the pull cord any more.
Right before graduation I hit the mother load of clearance curtains at Walmart. They had panels on clearance for $3-$6 each. So I snatched up ones that would work in our living room, master bedroom and the younger boys room. And declared that store bought curtains are nice. (no matter what I used to say) While on our hunt Phoebe found a lonely lime green and white sheer panel. We bought it. Then we had to order another one online...only online they are sold in packs of 2 - not 1.
It's so much brighter and more age appropriate.
We're still in discussion about the walls. Maybe a light lavender paint color?
