my favorite, budget-friendly curtain panels are baaaaaaack!!

Thank you all SO much for your sweet comments about our big news, here and on Instagram!!  We are all so excited, especially as we get closer to finding out what we’re having!  Today, though, I wanted to take it back to all-things-decor with some other exciting news, this time for your windows!

The second most asked question I get about my house (behind my wall paint color) is where my curtain panels came from.  There’s always a moment of disbelief when I tell them they are from IKEA!  Who doesn’t love crisp white curtain panels that are as affordable as they are dramatic? 

The bleached Merete grommet curtain panels have always been one of my favorite, budget-friendly ways to soften a room and they look fabulous paired with bamboo Roman blinds and are long enough to puddle a little on the floor. My panels are 118 inches long, which Ikea stopped selling about six years ago, much to my absolute heartbreak, but a client recently texted me from a jaunt to the superstore to tell me that they’re back! (Cut to me doing cartwheels down my driveway!)

I love custom curtain panels as much as the next design fanatic, but when you’re on a budget and want a big bang for your buck, you just can’t beat these.  At $40 for a pack of two panels, you’d be hard pressed to find fabric by the yard for that price! And if you don’t like the grommets, you can always cut them off, hem them and add pinch pleats and rings (this is an easy job for a seamstress and is relatively inexpensive) for a more custom look. (This is actually exactly what I’m going to do for our dining room!)

I am a big believer that a room really isn’t finished without some window treatments; if you’re on a tight budget, you really need to check these out ASAP because who knows how long they’ll be back for!  The best part is that those of us who don’t live right around the corner (myself included) can have them shipped to you!  Just be sure to choose the 118″ option in the drop down box:

Happy shopping and Happy Monday!
