It is AMAZING how doing such a small change can make your bedroom feel like you gave it upgrade. That's probably because we did! Joe and I put up a new curtain rod and blinds in our bedroom and I'm in love! I'd say new curtains, but while they are new to the room, they are quite old! I was handed these down by my parents a number of years ago when I went to live on my own. I remember them hanging in our old house in Princeton!
I wanted to put something up that let enough light in the room, gave us some privacy, and that "worked" with our decor. I love the gold curtain rod we got from Bed, Bath and Beyond because it's simple looking but it dresses up the space a bit! Plus it matches the lamp stands we got as a wedding gift!
We also replaced the vinyl cord blinds with some cordless blackout blinds. With Joe working third shift, we thought it would be good if he could get some good sleep during the day. These blinds really do the trick!
I'm really happy with how it turned out and looks! I can't wait to upgrade some more window treatments around our house!
