Bringing on MORE Autumn Bliss!
We are on day 6 of the 31 Days of Autumn Bliss series!

One of my favorite parts of autumn is warming up the decor, and that includes using curtains! If you have a beautiful room, stunning woodwork and a great view, curtains are not always necessary. But for the rest of us, curtains have their advantages. Not only can they provide privacy and cover up less than amazing windows or woodwork, they definitely help a room feel more cozy.
I had these curtains from my old house and I really wanted to reuse them to be thrifty, but I was worried they’d close the dining room in too much. But as soon as Fall hit, I was READY for more cozy. And instead of closing in the room like I feared, they added something the room needed, more fabric! Fabric makes a room feel softer and warmer…which to me means COZIER.
Hanging them was EASY PEASY, by the way. I was able to use a simple tension rod from the window molding to the wall to hang a panel on each side. I did not need them to function for privacy or warmth, so stationary panels on either side was all I needed. When the winter season is over, I can easily take them down!
The stained glass pieces are real antique church windows. They mean something to my family since we started a church ourselves a year ago. It is great to having things in my home that are authentic and personal. I know no one else will have them! I am kind of a rebel so I like having a unique style all my own. I also like that these stained glass windows fit perfectly in over our regular windows and help conceal a less than perfect view (they are stuck to the window frame with Command Hooks! Three cheers for those velcro like hooks, I use them EVERYWHERE!) I love solving problems in simple, creative and meaningful ways!
Autumn is a time when we should feel warm in our nests, so I’m really enjoying finally having curtains in two of my rooms now! Baby steps!
Do you add or change curtains in the fall?
