We have been wanting to get some window panels for our master for awhile now. The sun rises right in front of our bedroom windows & we get a blast of sunlight very early in the morning. Now, don't get us wrong, we really love the wake up call- most of the time. However, there are definitely days when we would prefer darkness a little longer...
So wouldn't you know it, when we finally found some panels we liked- they were sheer. Turns out that we really like them & don't mind the transparency.
Here's what we originally started with & what it currently looks like:
The window panels are from Target & are part of the Nate Berkus line. The style is called Heathered Herringbone & the color is 'lunar'. It's a really pretty gray-taupe color with a very subtle herringbone pattern (they look purplish in these photos, but definitely not in person). For some reason, they don't show the color 'lunar' online- but that's what the label said. The curtain rods are from Home Goods & the drapery rings are from Target:
The panels do have a rod pocket sewn in, but we prefer the look of drapery rings more (& it helps add a few inches to the overall height, so that we can install the rods higher):
We ended up hanging the curtain rods about 6" above the top of the windows & about 7" out from the sides of the windows. The spot where we wanted to install the brackets didn't fall on any studs, so we used wall anchors to mount the hardware:
So glad it's done! One more thing to check off our to-do list, even if it wasn't what we originally planned for.
