Shabby Chic Curtains~Sunday Favorites

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend, I'm very busy what with getting everything ready for the trip. I'm participating today with a great linky party Sunday Favorites the 98th one!!! These pictures were taken with my old camera, wow, what a difference! Stop over today to see some great posts, thanks Chari for hosting♥ 
Or as Mr. K would say “Shabby Sheick”… gotta love him!
I finally got them up today, the windows are all open and the AC is off and it’s a beautiful day! I love them, so what do you think? I just wish I had a better more expensive camera, the walls look like a pale yellow but the paint color is called Buff.
Here is what it looked like before the shabby bug bit me, I don’t miss it though, that’s how I know it was time for a change.
The chair I had found along the road years ago and had it stained and I had also given to my daughter, since she wasn’t using it and was in her garage I knew it was destined to be painted white.
Here it is distressed and the pillow I found brand new at a yardsale for $3.00 it’s black ticking!
Now I’d like your opinion…I only used one panel where ever I put the curtains, do you think I should use two? I just don’t want a drapey look I still want to be able to view the outside. This is one set of doors on the left side of the fireplace…
In the picture below, door is on the left of the picture and the window on the right is where my dining room table is, so you see I don’t want a wall of curtains, if you know what I mean. The doors only open on the side without the panel. I hope I haven’t totally confused you.LOL
I couldn’t resist showing the chandy again, the computer in the corner is my Mr. K’s he wants a roll top desk for the bedroom so that hopefully will be out of the corner someday, my lap top is on the table. My dream is to paint the Hoosier white and put the laptop on there, the thought of painting it is tiring though but it needs to be done. 
Thanks so much for stopping by I so appreciate it and BTW I love your comments too♥

Hi Rondell, I think it looks fine with the panels on just one side of the windows..and it is functional too! Your chandy is lovely and I love your new look-it is much fresher and brighter looking! xxoo Diana

I think it looks good to have the panels just on one side. Love the pillow!!
I took down all the prim stuff in my living room over the weekend. I still have a lot to go through, but I'm really liking my new look.

Sometimes change is good - - - though I tend to plod along in the comfort of my OLD ways.

Hi Rondell...

Oooh...I love your new curtains, my friend! They look sooo pretty! I was also admiring that pretty antique sewing cabinet. My grandma had one just like it! Love your antique chair too...aren't the carvings on these old pieces just magnificent? I really love all of the changes that you have made at your place, dear lady...sooo very beautiful!!! You did a fabulous job! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely post and your beautiful home with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party this week!!!
