Living room curtains

I am SO excited that I finally got around to these curtains!!! I've had the fabric FOREVER, but for some reason other projects kept coming first...

I knew I wanted to do pinch pleated panels. But, that is the only detail I didn't end up changing from my original plan.

Since I didn't wanna dish out a bunch of $$ for a long curtain rod, I did the dual curtain rods on either side of the window. (I already had these rods so it worked out perfect.)

The center part is a $6 black panel from Walmart that I hung horizontal on a 1x2 board. My sister helped me sew all these pinches in by hand. (THANK YOU Courtney!! It would've taken me awhile!)

Here are my awesome funky pillows I got at Ross to match the drapes. I wanted to add in bright colors in a modern style & I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pillows I ended up finding!

Our kitchen, dining room & living room is an open space that connects together so I made these for my 2 kitchen & dining room windows to match. (I used another $6 panel from Walmart, cut it in 2 & used half on each window. Already had these rods- it's the same ones as Ben's room I found on clearance... just spray painted them BLACK!) Talk about cheap window treatments!

We just changed out this chandelier from the generic silver one the house came with. This pic doesn't do it justice at all, it's really beautiful. It is NOT centered though (why do builders do that???) It's awfully noticeable from the kitchen- so, we're about to swag it over on a hook.

Thanks for looking!
