Did you know they have curtains rods specifically made for bay windows? Apparently they are a thing and they are awesome. I ordered this one from Amazon and it’s genius. You can change the length of all of the rods plus adjust the corner angles to fit your room. I thought about DIYing one (there are plenty of tutorials online), but I’d probably never actually do it and it wasn’t worth the time for price. It was $50, which seems like a lot at first, but it’s basically three rods in one. Looking at it that way, the purchase was a no-brainer.
The rod was pretty easy to install and I’m really happy with my purchase. I also bought new curtains for the windows. For the past 4+ years I’ve been using the black and white curtains that I sewed, but they don’t go with my new plan, so I had to get something else. I ended up buying these woven Nate Berkus curtains from Target. I ordered them online vs. buying them in-store because Target.com had a buy one, get one 40%-off sale plus an additional 10%-off. I needed four panels, but with all of the discounts I basically got one free!
I have to thank Sarah at Life at Virginia Street for featuring these curtains during one of her weekend recaps. They are exactly what I was looking for plus you gotta love a look for less. Although the pattern is smaller, it’s pretty much identical to Schumacher’s Betwixt fabric, which is currently on sale for $75/yard. I paid that for all four of my curtain panels! This is the best picture of the curtains' true color/pattern. The rest of the pictures are terrible, I know...
Now that the room has new curtains, the makeover is really starting to come together. I love how it’s looking so far and I can’t wait to buy the remaining furniture and start hanging art.
