The Curtains Are UP, The Curtains Are UP! {Another Nursery Post}

4 Comments

Yay!  I’m excited, it’s starting to come together a little more.  I still don’t have my dresser or my bookcase/bench, or anything hanging on the walls BUT it feels more like a bedroom now with the BEDS in there and curtains hung.  I knew I wanted to hang the curtains high and also having them lightly gracing the floors in the nursery, but I also knew they probably wouldn’t be long enough for all that.  I really didn’t want them looking like this:

I know it’s not a good shot of the curtains, but maybe you can see how they are 5 inches above the ground!  Why even make curtains?  Is this the new style?  Ick!  Anyways, back to the nursery.  Oh btw, I think I will be making all of my future curtains!

I’m not quite sure why the curtain on the right looks like the fabric starts so much higher.  All four of the curtains in this room are the exact same.  You can see that both fabrics touch the floor at the same length too.  I guess our walls are wonky.  It doesn’t bother me as long as they touch.

Other window.  That is Jeff’s monkey from when he was a baby.  I’m going to make a shadow box for it.  You can’t see the bottom of the fabric here, but it’s the same colors, but the pattern is just petals falling.  Whenever we get our bookcase we will have it pulled out to the sides so you can see.

I love this fabric.  It’s like a vintage watercolor fabric.  I was nervous about bringing the florals in here, because more than likely this room will be home to boy and girl toddlers.  SO I asked a teeny-bopper if the room looked like a boys or girls and she said BOTH!  Success!  I’m one happy mommy (to be)!

Instead of a traditional curtain rod I found two bamboo poles outside our house (don’t ask me where they came from I have no clue).  Anyways I’m going for a woodlands, magically, birdie, vintage, theme 🙂 and I thought these would be perfect!  I just spray painted them with white glossy paint.  No primer, no fuss, I didn’t care if they were perfect.  The curtain hides most of it anyways.

The only bad thing is it gets a little thin on the right side, so not sure how well it will hold the weight.  Seems to be okay since we have the center bracket.

I love the soft pink vintage pillow cases!  So sweet with the pale aqua!  I don’t know if they will always stay.  I want more corals and yellows, but they do make me happy for now…we will see about tomorrow…:P

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!
