Because of this, I wasn't jumping for joy when mom asked if I would help her put up some panels in my dad's office. I thought the blinds were enough and dad would never really notice so what was the point? Well I stand corrected. Those panels make such a difference in that room! But I'm getting a bit ahead of myself. Let's start with the before shot of the room.
As you can see mom is working with light golds, maroon and some black as the main colors in this room. We are by no means experts, so putting up this curtain rod took some trial and error. After a little reading of the instructions, some measurements and finally the break out of drill we were on our way.
We used the tips found on Love & Renovations and The Handcrafted Life to go a little higher and further out to maximize the size of the window.
I'm really surprised how much I liked the addition of the panels. I love what they do for the room and am now tempted to add some curtains in our future home.
What are your views on curtains? Are you a big fan or are your windows fitted with blinds alone?
