Green with Envy: Master Bedroom Curtains

Alright...we have storage! So if you read last week's Fabulous Friday, you know that I was hoping for nice weather so that I could refinish our free roadside find coffee table? Well this is what I got:
 A rainy, "icy," dreary weekend with a headache and a sore throat. So no outside and no painting. But the weekend was not a total wash. I was able to get a few other things that I have been putting off taken care of. And I had this little cutey to help me:
 I may just frame that one. She looks so cute on my damask chair! I had a big helper too, but he does not love being photographed so alas, there are no photos of him. :) But he was a big help!

When we bought our house, the previous owners also took all of the curtain rods, and left us with bare windows and holes. I did not so much mind the bare windows but the holes in the wall drive me batty.
 And the crack in the wall? Yeah someday we will patch that and repaint the room. It really could use a new coat of paint, but I am painted out!
I have been wanting to put curtains in our bedroom for a long time but have never actually gotten around to doing it. Until a few weeks ago my sister gave me two deep green curtain panels that she did not need any more. They are the EXACT same shade of green that is around the edge of our bedspread. Score! So I hopped my little self down to WalMart and got some $3 Oil Rubbed Bronze cafe rods. They are just the right size. I was not really too concerned with a fancy rod, I like the simplicity of them actually.
 My sweet hubby did the hanging. Here is what we got! The photos do not do them justice, our room photographs weird anyway but the dreary rainy outside did not really help with the natural light. Maybe one nice sunny day I will try to get better photos :)
 I did not bother to make sure the curtain hung perfectly. Sorry! Again, sore throat and head.
 I plan to get curtain ties or hooks to pull them back like this:
I just haven't done it yet. But I will! And when I do, you will be the first to know! Well...maybe after Michael...

By the way, I cannot wait to show you guys this week's DIY Thursday! I finally was able to finish up the livingroom! :) (Well aside from the trim work I would love to do in there, but that is not in the near future).
