Here is what our new living room curtains will look like. I love the contrast of the black with the "Pale Bamboo" paint. We have some black furniture that the curtains will compliment so well. As I mentioned before, one reason I chose the paint color is because it looks so great with black and red. I have not had new curtains in 20 years so I'm sure excited to have something new and different. The dining room is done and the living room almost finished. We stripped off wallpaper tonight on the big wall in the hallway. Things are moving right along!
