Faded Curtain Charm

My beautiful, shabby chic, french country curtains.  I found them a few weeks ago at a thrift store.  They were $3.79 per panel.  Yes, you read that right!  They are not factory made but were custom made for someone, at sometime.


And yes, they are lined!  Martha Stewart has a tutorial on how to fade curtains to give them a vintage, sundyed look by soaking them in bleach.  These came ready faded :)
 Here is my little french gem I purchased yesterday and love... 
Now off to deliver more Girl Scout cookies, which really don't fit in with my new dining room "look"! 


  1. Love the curtains, great find! And cookies go with any decor, if you ask me... ;)
