I hurried home to measure and discovered they would fit perfectly on my existing rods with just enough to brush the hardwoods. At $17.99 each, I knew this was a bargain! I spent a few days trying to talk myself out of my love for them, because I always do that when I really love something... It is like a test I give myself to make sure that it isn't an impulse buy. A week later, I passed the test and I was ready to commit; but Target was quickly selling out of these little beauties. I went to three Targets to get enough for my two large windows. I LOVE the way they turned out!!!
The lamps are an old pair I had that used to be brown. A little glossy white Rustoleum cleaned them right up. While I was at it, I also spray painted the shades in oil rubbed bronze. They were originally olive green. I had no idea that you can spraypaint fabric, but it worked quite well.
The room is so big and open that the pattern helps tie everything together. Yes, my couch pillows no longer match. That is my next project.
I would love to eventually have a pair of wing back chairs for infront of this window, once we move the TV over the fireplace. One step at a time. One step at a time.
I am also trying to figure out what to do here^ It needs something to fill the space and I can't decide what. I dont want to fill it with just anything... a photo collage, one big piece of art, a huge family photo? I change my mind daily, nothing has passed my week long test as of yet.
