The reason why is because I didn't love the curtain wall with the carpet. I knew I WOULD love it after the floors went in, so I wanted to wait to share it with you then!
I spent a lot of time searching pinterest for curtain walls.

I purchased 6 of the LENDA panels.
At $20 a pair, it only made sense to buy these and add a little of my own DIY touch.
They come with tabs at the top, but I decided to fold back the tabs, and use iron on stitching to adhere them down.
This gave the curtains a pinch pleat look, without the cost.
The great thing about IKEA curtains is that they're not hemmed at the bottom and they come in a few different lengths. I decided to leave them unhemmed and let them pool at the bottom.
This whole project, including the hardware from IKEA, cost me under $75. I think it had a huge impact for not a lot of money. It was definitely cheaper than even making my own curtains. I love when projects turn out that way!
