Hello, friends! Today, I’m feeling a bit frazzled and scattered. I woke up this morning feeling like I was running behind. I hate waking up like that. One of the reasons was because I didn’t quite get my striped painted curtains finished. I mean, the actual painting of the curtains is finished, but the hanging of the curtains is pretty sloppy at this point. I was bound and determined to completely finish them yesterday and get them hung and beautifully arranged for the pictures last night.
It didn’t happen.
I kept getting interrupted, so the second panel took me forever to finish. Then when I was finally ready to hang the curtains, I was missing one curtain ring. I had purchased two packages of 7 rings, but I searched and searched, and I could only find 13 rings. Then I also realized I was out of drapery hooks and eye hooks, so I couldn’t attach the return on the curtain panel to the wall. It’s still just flapping free.
By then, it was 9:30-ish, so a trip to Home Depot wasn’t possible. So, I have kind of, sort of, almost nearly finished curtains to show you.
But it’s better than nothing, right? And really, you’re just interested in the painted stripes, aren’t you? 😉
So here are my kind of, sort of, almost finished striped painted curtains that really need to be steamed, set on a backdrop of my still-incomplete hallway with the yet-to-be-repaired pendant light and the still-ungrouted floor with a few missing tiles. (Please promise you’ll just look at the pretty stripes…and the chalkboard door and yardstick vent. Mmmkay?)
I love how they turned out! I’ll love them more once I get them hung correctly, but still…there’s just something about stripes. Horizontal stripes are my favorite.
So there you have it…my striped painted curtains. What do you think?
If I can get my act together and actually finish this hallway, then I’ll show you how amazing these look directly across from the argyle wall in the utility closet. I promise, I’ll get it finished…eventually.
But today, I have to build a garden. Yippee!

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
