Well, my fiance and I spent this morning painting our master bedroom. It was the first room either of us have ever painted! The first thing I did once the paint was dry was hang my new curtains. I made them like a month ago, but couldn't hang them until we painted. I love how they turned out, but I wish I had made them about an inch longer  Sad Oh well!

Pardon the fan, even low VOC paint needs a good breeze!

The color is pretty and the curtains look cute, despite being too short. Maybe you could add a wide trim in a coordinating color to the bottom just to give them a little more length. just a suggestion

That's exactly what I was going to suggest.  But since you just painted, maybe not?  I think adding a wide trim would look great!  I honestly don't think the length is too bad though.

yeah but at least she knows the leftover paint is still good, for touch-ups!!

also, ditto on the other suggestions being good, too...

I really don't want to change the rod and hang them lower. I just filled all the holes before we painted. I'll just chalk it up to a learning experience  Smiley

Great job....I need to get my booty in gear and attempt that. We have a nice home with big bedrooms but I'm lousy at decorating, and I hate paying what they want at the stores. Plus, it's nice to have something different! I love that fabric...
