Brightening it up also comes in the form of new curtains. New no sew ruffle curtains :) The easiest curtains you'll ever make. The best part of the ruffles.....which makes them no sew....is that they come like that on the bolt. You may have seen them before. I got mine at Hobby Lobby. They come in a ton of different colors....except yellow, boo :(...at least not at my hobby lobby. Anyway. It's about $10 a yard, but if you use a coupon it takes it down to about $6. Since I only use these as panels and not for actually closing them, I got about 3 yards and cut it in half to make my panels.
You'll want to measure the height of your rod and then add a few inches on the top and a few on the bottom and that will get you the amount you need.
Once you are done cutting (or not cutting if you want them fuller), just get some of these clips that you'll find in the curtain hardware aisle. I think they are labeled with something to do with cafe curtains. They're about 2 bucks for ten or twelve of them.
Now, lay the curtain face down. Fold over a couple of inches, and then start pinching.
...then having to take care of this pup too :) This is his room. His couch, pillows and blankets. I'm sorry if you ever visit my house, you'll for sure...like..I completely promise you...that you'll get a ton of hair on you lol. It's not fun, but I love this guy, and he's just so darn cute :) So I live with it.
