Win a Curtain Makeover from!

As you know if you’ve been reading this here blog, (and WHY WOULDN’T YOU BE!?!?) I have had a lot of changes in my house lately!  My new kitchen from Granite Transformations will be revealed TOMORROW!  I also recently had the privilege to get a curtain makeover from, and now you have a chance to win one, too!  Let me tell you about our curtains.  First, the old.  We were badly in need of a curtain makeover.  All we had on the six windows in our living room were some plain valances we bought 9 years ago when we moved it.  They were as plain as can be because a) Bobby and I do not have a “flair” for decor and b) we had two cats at the time who would scratch the crap out of any decent curtains.  You can see our old valances in the background of this picture.  This is what we had on all six windows.  Ho-hum. YAWN.


These things were so dusty when we took them down! I never paid them a bit of attention. They were unremarkable.

Since we got rid of our cats last year (best heartless decision I have EVER made), we were ready for some REAL curtains!! I really wanted some sheers to still let some light in. I loves me some daylight. has a huge selection of all kinds of curtains for EVERY room in the house – so I had no trouble finding what I was looking for!  Here’s what we chose, a sheer curtain and sheer top treatment.  We have them arranged this way on our two sets of double windows:

And this way on our two single windows:

I personally love that we could get matching curtains for all our windows and arrange them slightly differently for a little variety but still have them go perfectly together!

Aren’t those better than our boring old valances?  I’d say so!

  4. I love those top tab wildflower curtains. I don’t think they’d match anything in my house, but that style is great!

  5. You know what, I have never noticed your curtains. But then again, we kinda do the plain thing too. Shoot, we don’t even have curtains on ANY of our windows – just blinds because I never can make a decision on what to get. You know, I’m kinda indecisive like that. I did have red ones up for awhile until they needed to be cleaned and never put them back up.

    Any way, I think you should have been more daring 😉 but they still look great. I love the top treatments!
