In the bedroom there were some really unappealing wooden blinds, which were inherited from the previous owner.
I really dislike blinds (understatement).
Recently I was lucky to find a set of vintage Jonelle curtains, in cotton fabric and made in England. They look like new, clean and crisp. The price tag was very friendly, which was a nice extra. *Happy*
The only things needed were a pole and some hooks to hang it.
And finally yesterday we scored a very nice wooden pole (it has acorn shaped finials!). Acorns and oaks are one of my favourite plants, so the acorn motif was just perfect. *Happy*
Today we took the old ones down and put the ‘new’ curtains up… I just love them!
What makes me even happier is that the whole thing is very environmentally friendly – only the pole is a new product. I even had vintage brass hooks to use, so didn’t need to buy the crappy plastic ones. *Very Happy*
Another day in vintage life style.
Do you like and buy vintage?
