Of course this happens. Finally I have redone all IKEA curtains so that they are acceptable in length and type. The we see the local curtain store open when we go and pick up a tapas cheese fondue set (really cool when you want to have a two person cheese fondue from christmas left overs).
So we decide to walk in. About two hours later we walk out with 5(!) possible curtains two for downstairs three for upstairs. After some deliberation we decide that one of the curtains for upstairs is not good for there but perfect downstairs!
So we go back to the store once it reopens after New Years and order the curtains. Measuring is doen the same day. Probably ready in three weeks. They will be green. Grass/apple green. Brilliantly fresh colour. Can’t wait, but what am I going to do with the curtains I made?
