Shabby Chic Curtains on a Budget

I found some beautiful curtains for our small dining area that is the family room.   I wasn't really looking for new curtains for this window, but these were too good to pass up!
We were in Lubbock Tx....H and I just drove over there to eat lunch and do a little shopping.   Tuesday Morning is always one of the stores that I love to go in and see what they have new......
I went to the back of the store...where the real bargains are...and look what I found!    These beauties were originally $269.99....but with that little orange sticker on them....90% off...yep, $26.99!   I was doing the happy dance all the way up to the register!   
They are fully lined linen curtains .....
and have the sweetest little bows on them.....
I wanted a pretty rod to hang them on....after looking at several stores, I found this one at Lowes.   I loved the roses on the ends.   

I also moved the buffet from in front of the window (before) and replaced it with a small table (after).    There is a post showing where the buffet went here...http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2014/01/buffet-or-sideboard.html

I couldn't find a photo of the ceiling fan that was hanging over the table...it was pretty dated and I always tried to keep it out of the photos...lol!   You can see the pull at the top of the before photo.   Anyway, I found a chandy to replace it when we were in Lubbock.

I haven't Pennyfied the chandy yet.....but, that's another post!


See you Soon!
