i just bit the bullet and got these curtains for our new living room setup. after struggling over what kind of curtains to get, looking for low prices, attempting to find fabric to make my own, i just decided to go for it. i hope they look right. i also need to find a small dining table so that we can eat somewhere besides the couch or the bed. i am probably going to get one of these tables from ikea:
if i get this white one, i think i would paint or cover the metal legs with something... drop leaf tables are so expensive everywhere else, and i just don't have the energy to try to solve it with a diy table. i think i have to make one of these work. i will post pics when as it all comes together!
