You move into a new house and bring the window treatments from your old house only to find they don’t fit the new windows.
You move into your new house and would love new window treatments but being budget conscious and knowing you need many things for the new house you try to make the old curtains work.
But they’re just so blah! And they don’t fit in with their new surroundings!
Today, I’m sharing two new & improved, upcycled window treatments that used to be old and blah but now have a new lease on life.
When you think about the fact that this lake house was probably built in the 70’s the floor plan is perfect for the way we live today.

It’s my job to think about curtains and I’ve come to the conclusion that Builders don’t think about curtains. Ever. Are you surprised?
Have you ever lived in a home with arched windows in a bedroom? A bedroom facing East, South or West?
Have you ever had windows built so close to the fireplace that they must have been part the fireplace design?
Or maybe you have a kitchen window reminiscent of the one above?
Then I imagine you agree with me.
But I digress.
This post isn’t about Builders it about these adorable, simply elegant, curtains!
