Hey folks! Here's a product review as well as a mini nursery update!
Some of you might remember from this nursery post, that I was planning on buying Pottery Barn's Velvet Drapes in Stone. Now, I'm a huge fan of Pottery Barn's Velvet Drapes. I have them throughout the house, even the curtains that were previously in the room were PB's Velvet Drapes, but as we all know, the price definitely adds up, especially when you're on a tight nursery budget ;)
But just recently I was contacted by the folks over at Curtainworks about their newest drapery collections. Lo and behold, after a bit of browsing their selection (which is plentiful btw!) I spotted the Messina Opulent Velvet Lined Drapes. Not only did they look gorgeous and exactly like the Pottery Barn drapes I love so much, BUT they had some great color selections! I fell in love with the Peacock colorway and I just knew it would look fabulous in the nursery!
Fast forward a couple of weeks...and thanks to the generosity of Curtainworks, guess what's now hanging in the nursery? Yep, that's right! Gorgeous Velvet Peacock drapes for Baby B's peacock themed nursery. How perfect is that? ;)
They look great don't you think? I've gotten a ton of compliments on them already, ranging from the painter to a couple of friends that have stopped by. I would highly recommend them if you're shopping around for curtains. Not only is the velvet soft and thick, but the drapes are fully lined as well!
And just to prove my point, I'm going to do one of my chic finds for you ;)
|Pottery Barn's Velvet Drape 50"x 84" (wheat) = $109|
|Curtainworks Messina Opulent Velvet Lined Drapery 52" x 84" (gold) = $49.99|
Less than half the price of the Pottery Barn drapes and just as much drama! I'm sold ;)
