I tried to make an exception and went to Home Depot last year to buy roman shades for my living room, but we ended up getting some roman shades on clearance for $10 each. Thirty bucks total for my whole living room!
|seriously, i got them for $30 total. go go gadget clearance!|
(I tried to take some phone pics and upload them to picasa to use on my blog, but none of my google friends are around to tell me what magic iphone app works for that. If you know, clue me in! Also if you have one of those online "how to take good pics for your blog" courses to recommend, let me know. I think I need a refresher course. I even have a nice enough camera. *sigh*)
|A Detailed View|
In any case, they are red, which I love for winter, but for summer/fall I'd like to do something in a green blue palette. Also since then we got some free furniture that is more steel blue/beige/green, so red is not really on the menu. I can't find anything for $30, though, so I'm totally spoiled and haven't been able to take down my roman shades.
Target and JC Penney are favorite places to fantasy shop in the realm of "might actually buy", but Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware are where I look when I want to pretend like I have a zillion dollars to spend. I should actually check out if Garnet Hill has window stuff, because MAN Garnet Hill is full of pretty.
I normally prefer JCP to Target for curtain shopping online + added self loathing. JCP seems to have easier categories to work with, but Target recently changed their website, so it's better.
These are pretty cute, and in my size they're only $44. That's not too bad! Still over a hundred bucks, but I am starting to believe my magic $30 roman shades were a freak of shopping. (I mean, guys, they had a damask roman shade with a sheer roman shade all together! lovely! i should have bought them in every color.)
Also, it turns out that Garnet Hill does have a small selection of curtains. Which are fabulous, of course, because it's Garnet Hill.
Someday when we are no longer under construction and have disposable income for expensive curtains...... I still won't pay $158 a piece on account of how I am super cheap. Oh well, I will have to head back to JCP to find something more reasonable.
Why are curtains so much money, anyway? Am I missing some magical cheap place to shop for curtains?
