Pink and White Striped Curtains

I love it when I am able to make such a dramatic change in a room for $5!    I found these extra long pink and white striped ...satin....fully lined drapes for $5 at a yard sale Friday.

Pictures don't do these drapes justice.    They are so heavy and luxurious.....what a find!

The drapes were long enough that I was able to puddle them on the floor.

Before....white curtains ......................................................................Now,  pink & white stripe.
I have used some pink and white stripe in the other areas of the family room,
I added some pictures along the window sill....just to give it a little different look to the area.     The two pictures on the right end of the sill are new  yard sale purchases too.

They are small unframed oils that I picked up for $3 each.

I made a table runner out of pink and white doilies.....

These two pillows were purchased at a yard sale Saturday.....
I don't know if the pillows will stay in the dining room chairs or not....but I like them there for now.   I like the way they  pick up some of the black that is in the area rug under the dining room table.  

  Thank you so much for stopping by....come back soon!


  1. Penny! I love the added pops pf color!! The curtains are stunning and really make a statement in the room. Love the runner of doilies! And the colors in the pillows. The oils are drop dead gorgeous! You always find the most amazing things!!
    I am officially PART TIME as of today!! Joe picked up a sheet cake for me to take into work tonight to celebrate and then I have 3 days off after tonight! I am so excited........

  3. Good Morning Penny
    I love your new Pink and white curtains. they are just gorgeous and looks so good in that room. Love the doily runner too. Have a great day Penny

  4. A wonderful find! I love the table runner also!

  5. WOW - those drapes are absolutely gorgeous!!!! You find the best treasures - they look beautiful in the room.

  6. You do find the most wonderful sales, I just love the new look, the curtains are lovely with the lace and flowers in the window too, Beautiful touch, I have some pink and white doilies my mother in law made me years ago, such a blessing to have them now that she has passed.

  7. I probably would have passed them up...and been an idiot for doing so. I need living room drapes..but because of all the prints I've stuck to the cream. One never knows until they are up...and those look fantastic, Penny!! We went the sales this weekend too...but only got a few small things. I've already given away two of them. :) Daughter in law took a measuring cup home..very old...and a crock for spoons. I managed to keep my adorable little flour sifter. I have to wonder if it is a salesmans sample.. You did GREAT.

  8. p.s. Of all your pretties, and you have a lot, my very favorite that little pig. Over in the corner. I look for him every time you post..or rather it's probably a "her"...anyway...I covet that precious piggy!!! :)
