Ready to chat about house updates again!?! Me, too! In my rancher’s master bedroom, the windows were draped with basic white curtains. I have been making some changes at my new house.
If you’re new, you can check out the before pics of our New House before we moved in and get caught up on all the updates here. This is what the Master Bedroom looked like when we first visited. The paint and texture were actually better in here than in a lot of areas of the house. Since we’re obviously talking ‘new curtains’ today, you can see the gold satin curtains that the previous owner left behind for us.
As nice of a gesture as it is, I find it kind of sad because most of the time, the new owners have a completely different style. Long ago I stumbled on the Hobby Lobby chevron curtains for such a great price when you use your coupon and knew I wanted them for my next house. (My little Berkeley is so little here – I love my little furbaby).
The original owners hung the rod directly over the window, but I’ve learned from trial and error (and the advice of many design friends, especially Nate Berkus) that when the curtains hang higher the room seems taller. Although the rods needed lifting, I am thankful that the original owners left them for us. I’m a little grossed out by the idea of reusing drapes, aka dust traps, but I’m all about reusing the rod! Thanks previous owners!
This pic isn’t great, but there’s a reason for my madness and I’ll share it real soon! XO!
