[Home Decorating] Bay Window Part 2 of 3

Wow... where have I been?

Can tell you where I haven't - shopping!

I've been so wrapped up in getting the house in "visitor" condition that I haven't had time to shop or blog about shopping - my wallet thanks me.  Of course "visitor" condition is always more than just dusting, vacuuming, and changing the sheets in the guest room.  My visitor condition always includes some last minute home renovations.

We ordered the bay window curtain rod and finally went and got curtains last weekend (ok, so I've been shopping a little). 

Umbra Solutions Bayview Black Window Set - Bed Bath and Beyond $49.99

Ritva Curtains (2 Panels) - Ikea $19.99 (woohoo)

Since we had a little issue with another bird flying into our dryer vent, our dryer has been out of commission.  Now that it's back up and running, I'll wash the curtains tonight, before I measure where to hang the curtain rod.  I am afraid the curtains will be too wide at 57", if that's the case I think cutting them in half and using some iron-on hem tape will do just the trick and get up 4 panels instead of two (like the BBB stock photo above)

I'll be back later with a Poll to get your opinions of what you like better, the current set up or the new.  I'll also share some polyvores of how I've been dressing recently, since the camera battery died and I haven't recharged it yet... oops.

(catch up on the original bay window post here)


  1. Can't wait to see your new bay window setup... I have two bay windows in my dining room and haven't been motivated enough to put curtains up. Maybe seeing yours will do the trick!

  2. Good luck on your window setup! I'm completely new to the "renovation" thing, so I am SUPER interested in seeing how yours goes!

  3. Oh so exciting! I cannot wait to see the new bay windows!
