Oooooh Some Pretty Master Bedroom Curtains Are About To Enter Your Life!

Hello! Happy Wednesday to you!

I apologize that a phantom post went up on Monday with nothing in it. Fooled you!

Today, I have the real deal. And, if you like curtains then boy oh boy was it worth the wait!

A couple of weeks ago you got to see the final Nursery-In-A-Closet product. Somehow I managed to keep the curtains out of that post's photos and wheeeewww weeeeeee did I build some suspense. I can't even count the number of people* who emailed me asking to see what kind of awesomeness I had done with the windows.

THE.TIME.HAS.COME. to reveal it!

now
please

I love how they turned out but I think I may have laid it on a little thick!

I went with Chipper Twill Storm by Premier Prints for the fabric and my awesome Mother-in-law was kind of enough to sew these little diddies right up for me. She finished them hours before August was born and claims that August wasn't going to come until she had finished sewing all of the curtains in the house.


I had decided that the width of each curtain panel should be half of the width of the window and no more. My mother-in-law suggested that a wider panel might look better. She was big time right! She added about 8" to what I suggested and it really helped. They would have been super skimpy if we had gone with my measurements.

Since the window to the right of the bed (pictured below) butted right up to the headboard I decided to go with just one curtain panel. I'm into it the result! 


It is driving me crazy that I didn't straighten up my comforter or pillow better before taking these photos but I took them in the 3 minutes that I had while no babies were sleeping in a room that was actually tidy. 

Here is a glimpse of my snazzy curtains peeking into August's room.

Here's another Fooled You, Bert (that's a common expression around here... it is the title of one of Cora's favorite Sesame Street books). I removed all of the extra baby stuff to take some photos of the room looking fairly decent. 
Aha! I am tried to fool you once again. I removed the huge piles of clean clothes from the bed, the boogered-up Q-tips from the bedside table (ewwwww yes I did say that and I apologize), I made the diapers look orderly and I took out the massive dirty clothes piles.

Here is the room looking cleanly baby-ed up:

Here is a close-up of my baby station. August thinks he lives in California and likes to wake up at Pacific Standard time (4am) instead of Eastern Standard Times (7am). Until we break that awesome habit I keep a couple of toys by my bed to entertain him.

Ignore that gross wall situation above the changing table. I tried to put up 2 different floating shelves and neither worked. It is not at the top of my list but eventually I will make that area look good. 
On top of getting the room baby-ed up the way I just showed you we have also classed it up a good bit by adding our signature look of garbage bags to the windows. Yes, yes we are classy folks. Now, between the curtains and the blinds there are trash bags to make the room pitch black with The Aug Man is going down for his naps. It makes a huge difference! Naps instantly improved. We will remove the fancy black bag layer of the window when Sir August moves out of our room.

*it turns out that I could count and the number was zero.
