At the time, picking out cute knick knacks was more important.
However, I was kinda getting tired of how our blinds let in a sliver of light that went directly into my eyeballs at 7 am. Naturally I picked the window side of the room when we moved in. How could I have known?
Plus our window looked ugly.
I have mentioned on here before (like when we moved in) that we needed curtains for our bedroom. I just became super discouraged after looking for ages and only finding ones that were upwards of $100 a panel. Um hello, retailers? Those curtains better be spun with thread of gold and silk to be that much. We also needed really long ones to cover the whole window and I sure as heck wasn't going to sew them myself.
Then I had a brilliant idea. A trip to Ikea. Where else can you find
And thank goodness, Ikea delivered. We originally went in wanting a different pattern, but the ones we bought actually turned out to be perfect. They also came with a liner, so no more light into my retinas.
How the hell you pronounce their name, I don't know. But they are awesome.

A meeeeellion times better.
And sorry for the creepy night pictures. Obviously the best time to hang up curtains and take pictures is at 9 at night.
