Curtains....Curtains I tell you!!!

I knew curtains were important in the dining room.  I needed them to tie the colors of all my upstairs room together.  I also wanted to really love them.  After 5 months of searching I finally admitted that I wasnt going to find a inexpensive, off the shelf option that would work for me.  I searched for a fabric instead and at long last found something I LOVED.  Then I talked myself into spending the money to have the custom curtains and pillows for the couch made from a wonderful seamstress on Etsy.  I think it helps tie the living room/dining room together. 


Here are the new cushions on the couch-which tie into the curtains.

The Living Room is finally liveable.

Progress.  Sweet progress.  Scott and I are really getting it done around the house.  I am going to split this into as many posts as possible since I have been so stingy with details and pics until now.  Here are some living room afters.

Close up of the new chairs.  I bought the green lumbar pillows to tie in the green used throughout the room.  I plan to monogram them eventually...

As a reminder-this is where we started...just over a year ago.  Shocking!!!
