I FINALLY got my new curtains iron and hung in my family room. Word to the wise, the Ikea RITVA curtains shrink a ton AND they are a massive pain to iron. Other than that, I have no idea why I was wasting my time trying to fix my curtain oops months ago.
I got the white ones and they aren't too white or too ivory, they are just right. In other words they don't make my
dirty white sofa look awful- they actually match pretty darn well. They are IKEA so of course they aren't lined, but I'm actually happy about that. The more light into my dark apartment, the better!
They have been up for a few weeks and I've been enjoying them immensely. I'm just getting restless again. Restless to try to give them a little makeover. No dye this time, I learned my lesson the last time I got restless, this time I want to add some trim. Look how pretty a little trim makes these panels

Now one other little issue- I need approximately 25 yards. That's a lot of dough if I'm picking out expensive trim. So the search is on for pretty, inexpensive trim. Wish me luck, I need it.
