New Curtains! Before and After

Here was my DIY project yesterday afternoon: New Curtains!
(please excuse the blue painters tape. It’s only been up for 5 years. We’ll paint that wood one of these days!)
(Nice shot of our new Durango too!)
I made these curtains in 2008 so they have been up for a while. I was ready for a change. 
 I love the fabric but HOLY COW I paid and arm and a leg for it even though it was 40% off at Joanns. 6.5 yards of anything isn’t cheap, I guess. Plus I fully lined the curtains with 6.5 yards of muslin to protect from fading. 
I love how they look! They really add a new dimension to our dining room. 
Yay for DIY weekend projects!
(I must give a shout-out to my husband, Aaron, who against his will (his will was to nap) graciously moved the curtain rod and hung the curtains for me. Love you!)

I'd love to hear your story!
