Weekend Snapshot: Rods And Curtains


As mentioned, I am focusing on home decoration this year.  It has been two years and I haven't done anything for my home.  My attention was completely with my bundle of joy but now, I can say that it is time to do a little home make-over. I do not have great skills in home decor but I am trying to do my best here.  First, I bought some curtain rods and curtains.  Curtains makes a room look a lot different.  As you enter the room, you feel lighter and you will see it even neater.

So today I asked my husband to hang the curtain rods in the master's bedroom and in the guest room.  The master's bedroom has two windows and the guest room has one.  The dining area has two windows too.  But I only bought three curtain rods because I want to start with the bedroom windows first.  Looking at distance and height to see if they're proportioned is more difficult than drilling holes on the wall.  My husband tried his best to make it right.  And he did a good job.  :)

I picked these curtain rods because they look pretty to me.  What attracted me to these rods was the crystal thingy on the ends.

I have lived in my house for 5 years and never decorated, of course I hate my house so it is a little hard to get motivated, lol. I love those rods, the crystal on the end reminds me of the doorknobs in my grandmothers house. They would have looked beautiful in my old house.

It is, pretty stylish Mare. I still use old style you know the box thing.. I would love to have curtain rods as well.

Really like the rods, so pretty. I'm better doing this type of thing myself rather than asking my hubbie, he's not very good at diy.

when we moved in we have blinds in every window and i traded it with curtains too. I chose a simple black ball ends rod. it compliments the color of most of our furniture.:)

I can remember the time when my husband and I were redecorating our house and painted the walls, the we went shopping for draperies and things. I love DIYs and decorating. :) Good luck on yours!

I'm guilty of this as well too. Often time, my attention is focused on my daughter and neglect our home. Upon reading your post, I'm somehow enlightened to redecorate my house too.

Speaking or rods and curtains, my husband just put up one in our girls play room last night and it does make a difference. The room feel cozier than before :-)

Changing out curtain rods and drapes are such an easy way to start updating a room.
