Recently Momma Cat's Big Sister Cat took her and their friend Pam Cat to IKEA for a "girls shopping day".  We had loads of fun and spent hours looking around and had some delicious coffee and lunch! 

While there, Momma Cat had been eyeing some curtains that she wanted for her living room, but didn't quite have enough to buy them, so Big Sister Cat bought them for her for her birthday!!!!

She was so happy, she took them home and began working to shorten them so she could hang them up in her windows.  It took a while, but it was well worth the effort! 

See what you think.

Momma Cat was part way through taking down the lights and the curtains before she remembered to take a "before" photo of one of the front windows.

Front curtain
 This curtain was only a year or two old, but Momma Cat never really liked it.  It was just white on white. It had no pizzazz!

 This curtain is soooooooo old that Momma Cat can't even remember when she made it!  It's at least 20 years old, or more!

Front curtain
 This is what the two side curtains looked like.  They let in a lot of sun, which was nice, except in the summer when it could be a real problem!

Side curtain

The only really nice thing about these old curtains was that it was easy for our Midna Cat to look outside and see the birds!

New front curtain

New side window and front window curtains
 See how much nicer they look!  Now Daddy Cat is going to put up some new decorative holdbacks for the new curtains.  They have tie-backs right now, but the new fixtures will make it much easier to open and close them.  

Thank you, Thank you Big Sister, and Big Brother-In-Law Cat for the new curtains!  They make us smile every time we look at them!!

  1. The new curtains are so pretty! They really add a nice pop of color to the room. And I'll bet Midna Cat looks striking sitting next to them, too!

  2. Thanks Maureen!
    They do make the room look a lot smarter! Midna looks good against them too. Daddy Cat put up some hold-backs for them too, so they look very, very nice!
