Vintage Cottage Floral Curtains

I bought some beautiful vintage curtains when I was at Farm Chicks, and I knew they would be perfect for my bedroom in a bit of a mini-refresh. The vintage cottage floral curtains were the best touch for that light and airy feel I was going for. From years of use, the fabric also had that perfect faded and washed quality to them.

The colors were a perfect match to go with the blue-gray color of our bedroom wall from when we gave this room a makeover. I love vintage fabric and the way it was printed and the colors that were used. It has such a different quality and style than fabric printed today.

I had thought about making some drapes for this room with tablecloths, but was so glad I found this vintage rose patterned fabric.

The only problem was there were only two panels and I needed 4; but at for $20 for the pair, how could I pass them up?! I knew even if I didn’t use them as drapes, it was great fabric. Luckily, my good friend, Anne, and I brainstormed and decided to split each panel in half and use them for decoration only. I have to admit, when pictures are not being taken, my hubby and I are black-out shade people. I am like a vampire with the morning sun. It worked out even better that I didn’t need them to touch the floor either with the headboard against one window and a dresser against the other.

I decided not to line the floral curtains, because I love the  sunlight coming through them and how bright it makes our bedroom.. AFTER I am already up. 🙂 But I do love this cottage direction our bedroom is going in. We spent years working on the kids room only to ignore ours. I’m so glad we made those changes!

See how our bedroom has changed and how it looks after this look!

Hi sweet friend…can’t get into your etsy shop to leave you a note..but was wondering if you could send me another flower for my brown messenger bag..I lost it in Seattle and can’t find it anywhere!!! I was soooo sad and mad..some person has a nice flower. The bag is just not the same without it…let me know the cost.
