Last we spoke about the family room, we had added some pretty new bamboo shades and the windows were sort of begging for some drapery.
They totally were, I swear.
I decided on some soft-looking white sheer panels.
...Which luckily ended up being super pretty!
I love how soft and billowy they look.
Another reason I had held off for so long on these was because beside the fact I wasn't 100% sure on what type I wanted, I knew we'd have to have super long ones (120"), which would end up costing quite a bit. So I knew I had to be absolutely sure.
Well, these were majorly affordable.
No, seriously. They were $23.99 a piece.
I got four of the "Melrose Shimmer Sheer Grommet Panel" in white from Curtainworks online.
I'll be honest, the word "shimmer" scared the crap out of me and I was worried about how nice they would look for the price. I definitely took a chance. But I'm so happy I did. They look super nice and give the room a more luxurious vibe. I'm majorly impressed!
And for the record, they have zero shimmer to them whatsoever, thank goodness.
I also really love how these are grommeted. At that height, the grommets help them open and close easily if we ever wanted a little more privacy and I think the grommets at the top keep them looking perfectly pleated and more "arranged" at the top, rather than more bunched up like pole pockets can look.
This photo below shows just why I didn't want to block any of the light or pretty view...
Ignore the messy cords... When we pulled the table out to put up the curtains, I didn't arrange them back in their little command hooks. Do you guys do that? If you've got a table like this where you can see a massive cord explosion behind, you can just grab some clear command hooks and sort of run the cord through them to keep them straight and out of view. Cords drive me nuts. Tell me I'm not alone on that... haha
Just for fun, here's a pic of what the room looked like over there about six months ago...
...and what it looks like now! So crazy how different the paint can look in here depending on the lighting! And because I'm super helpful, I have no idea what it's called. It was newly painted that mystery shade when we moved in.
So what do you all think?? We're really in love with them. I was so impressed with them that I ordered four more for another space. I'll share it soon!!
