MY ONE PRIME PURCHASE: BLACKOUT CURTAINS

I only made one purchase on Amazon Prime Day, but it turned out to be a good one.


I bought new curtains for our master bedroom. I am loving them so much that I thought I would share them with you. 

A couple of years ago I decided to go with a more neutral look in our bedroom. That meant my darker drapes had to come down. I made some place-holding curtains out of drop cloths, inspired by pictures on Pinterest. They were a good, temporary fix and gave the room the look I was going for, but they were not nearly dark enough for sleeping past daylight. I don't even remember how I came across these on Prime Day, but for the price and with so many good reviews, I went for it. 


I've never had panels/curtains/drapes with grommets before--I've never been crazy about the look. I do see the appeal now, though. They make for super easy installation and they open and close with ease. When they are opened, the grommets are not too visible, and when they are closed, no one is here to see them. :-)




You can order individual panels, but I wanted two on each window. It made more sense for me to order the four-pack


It's hard to show you the quality in a picture, but the material is really nice and soft and substantial. They're machine washable and energy efficient, too. 


I ordered the longer length and have them puddling just a tiny bit. It would be nothing to hem them and have them flush with the floor. But for now I'm leaving them longer.


Here is a morning picture I hopped up and took with my cell phone this summer for comparison's sake. 


And this one is a late afternoon picture after both sets were up.


The final product...



They come in multiple colors. I bet they have the one you need if you happen to be in the market for new (and room darkening) curtains. Almost forgot to mention the price--you can do two windows for less than $60. I don't think you can beat that!
