I Know You've Been Waiting For This

Last week I was looking for some drapery rods online. I found out how long our dang window was and was referred to check out JC Penney's selection. I found this Cindy Crawford rod on the website and found out that it was on sale. I put all three that I would need in the cart to see what my total might come to. It was around $175. They were all 50%-60% off. I wanted the silver.
I just happened to be doing some grocery shopping and walked over to the drapery section and spotted this:

It is the exact same thing, if not identical. This was found at Walmart and I got all three for what I would have paid for one at Penney's. I'm so serious.

Here they are in action:

The grommets.
And finally, the curtains. My friend Amber made these for me. She is amazing. With a capital A. She and I went to JoAnn's a few months ago to pick out fabric. We have lived in our house for two years and I never bothered to get curtains. The front window is massive and i just didn't feel like looking. We got used to living without them so it wasn't a priority. Every time Amber came over she would be weirded out by the fact that we didn't have curtains so she offered to make them for us. She is amazing.

This is the big window, closed obviously.

The pattern. I believe this is Better Homes & Gardens line. They still have it at JoAnn's, I was there Sunday.
Our entry and dining windows, open.
Entry and dining, closed.
A little of all three.
Isn't that tree amazingly orange? I took this for the curtains, but then noticed the tree.
Big window, partially open.

Big window, all the way open
I love them. It is so nice to finally have them. I didn't realize what I was missing!
