Many many moons ago, (19/05/15) so eight moons technically speaking, we went to worship at the altar of Dunelm and bought new bay curtain poles to replace our ancient, brittle, fragile and failing Swish pulley corded curtain and pelmet track. It's served us well! It's been repaired now too many times. And despite declarations of 'it'll only take me an hour or so' by the HG, those magical 60 or so minutes had yet to materialise...
Until this morning!
I think it's my Valentine's present!
The old track is down, the new pole is up. Yes, it did only take the HG an hour or so. It took me considerably longer to unhook the dusty curtains AND linings, stuff the metres of 90 X 90 cotton into the washer, dither about pegging out v shoving them in the dryer, opt for the dryer but bitterly regret it because the fecking things kept just rolling into one big ball, iron metres of curtains AND linings, put hooks back in to curtains and linings and then hand them back to the HG to put back up - much crinkling occurred. However, I have to say, betwixt the two of us, my window area ( the HG cleaned them too ) looks lovely!
We honestly wondered if the curtains would make it through the washing process. We expected ribbons of shredded material erupting from the washer. ( By the way, I'm laughing my head off here about the way I'm writing about my curtains!!!! How VAIR interesting and topical!!! )
The sun really streams in and the inner edges are almost bleached white! Those white edges are now at the sides! They'll be good enough for another few years! I'm not one for change. I still love my decor.
Here's a very interesting photo of my very interesting curtains.
Laughing now because I'm leaving it there!
Lots of love from
