I moved into a new place last September, and needed new curtains for our HUGE new living room windows.  All I had on hand was this purple chintz, so that's what went up...it was okay, but a little blah (our couch is purple too) and a lot dark.  So now...

Replace old and purple on the right with new and orange on the left!

All done except for the hemming (which was finished on Monday):

I'm madly in love with this fabric - we have so much crap in our living room, encompassing every color of the rainbow, that I always shied away from prints because I figured they would add to the chaos.  But they're so much brighter and lighter and more fun than the old curtains!  And they (sort of) go with our eclectic, vintage/retro/morbid/the odd plastic toy style, so I think it all works.
