I found these curtains at Pier 1 and fell in love. They are our orange and paisley. Two of our favorite things! We got them home and realized we needed them to be longer in order to hang them high and have them touch the ground. I remembered they had the same print in green, so I went back and bought one panel of green to add to the bottom. I am in no way a sewing expert, so my mom helped me rip the seams out and add a foot of green to each curtain. They ended up looking very professional because my mom insists on doing things to look good wether you can see them from the front or not. She had me cut the lining and add lining to each one as well. I guarantee that if I had done this project on my own it would not have turned out as nice. Thanks mom. =)

We found the fleur de lis brackets at a garage sale for like $10 and they were originally around $60. It was my husband's idea to put the black finnials on the white rod. I love the contrast.

We are going to hang our black letter "B" between the windows. Any suggestions on how to organize all those dvds? I have two shelves in the garage that need to be painted. I can't decide on black v. white or where to put them in our cramped living room.
