    Default How old are your curtains?

    Our livingroom curtains are horribly old. I even pulled the diningroom curtains down and have none hanging. They were just so fugly. I have new valances in the computer room and in the spare room, but all the other rooms either have nothing or old ugly curtains. It's definitely time for some new curtains over here.

    Living room curtains are only a few months old, kitchen curtains are about 6 yrs old as are the ones in the playroom and the livingroom. Valances in my sewing room (soon to be Lauren's room) are 7 yrs old, and the curtains in Kathryn's room are about 5 yrs old. I don't have curtains in either of my bathrooms

    Blinds are 2 years old. I purchased new blinds when we moved here. All the blinds were a dark green and I didn't like them. Dh now has them in his workshop.

    I only have curtains in our m/bedroom. They were purchased 2 years ago when we moved here.

    I still don't have curtains in our living room.

    Both kid's rooms, the bathroom and the kitchen - I made the curtains and they are about a year old.

    I honestly have no idea-- all the curtain in this house were here when we purchased it , 11 years ago.

    Ooops, forgot--- my 17 yo ds sewed himself new bedroom curtains a few months ago from some scrap material I had, and I made a bathroom curtain from an old shower curtain a couple years ago. All the others are original.

    When we moved in to this house just over four years ago, every room had vertical blinds that were really old and in bad shape. Over time, I have gotten rid of all of them except the ones covering the sliding glass door out back. So, most of my curtains are 2-4 years old.

    The curtains in the dining room and living room are about 2 and a half years old. dd's curtains are about 1 yr. old. The rest of the rooms don't have curtains.

    I have fugly curtains in my dining room and nothing anywhere else. I'd like to have some. I can't decide what I want to hang up. I've been keeping my eye out for the last 3 years for something cheap, free or recycled and it hasn't happened yet.

    We have no curtains at all. That seems so strange to me but that's how it is. We have mini blinds on all the windows but have just never put up curtains. We live so far out that no one could possible see in anyway. I do hope to eventually get some up at least in the bedrooms. Just another one of those things I keep putting off.
