I am SOOO excited to share with you our awesome window treatments!!! Surprise Surprise they are from IKEA....
I went to IKEA in search of the Vivan Curtains which are only $9.99 for a pair! Cannot beat that price...
But back in the corner of the store a bright and bold pattern caught my eye.
Janette Curtain and are a little more expensive at $24.99 for a pair (Still a great price). In fact they are so much nicer when compared to my original curtain pick. The heaver weight (almost like a canvas) and the fact that they are machine washable make them well worth the extra money!
So I forked over almost $100 for four pairs of curtains (I only hung 6 panels but kept the other two for other items)
I typically use curtain rods but for the screened in porch I decided that I would try something new.
Dignitet Curtain Wire from IKEA. I liked that it looked so much lighter and less bulky compared to a traditional rod.
I purchased two packs as well as a few of the Dignitet Support/Corner fixtures. My total for the hardware came to only: $45.94
When I got home I measured, cut & hemmed the curtains to the perfect length. The curtains are originally 98" which I LOVE! Usually you have to pay so much more for curtains that long!
I did a double hem so that it would hang a little heavier on the bottom.
Now I have to admit that the Dignitet System was a PAIN it the booty to hang... there was cussing involved and at one point I thought that I had cut the wire down too small and I cried to Matt... He was amazing and immediately came out and fixed the issue for me. Such a nice hubby!
But I love that the system allowed for me to easily hang a panel in the corner and after I cussed my way through one section the others went up much easier.
These bright panels really made a HUGE difference in the room and they were the perfect starting point for inspiration in the rest of the space... I mean just look at all of those fun colors!
I would HIGHLY recommend looking at IKEA for economical window treatments!
