Bedroom curtains

I had these valances up in my bedroom windows and recently changed them (cause I like change) to longer red curtains. I wanted to darken the look of the room.

But when I got these up....

...I realized that I didn't like them. They just seemed out of place and I didn't know what I wanted. When I was out at yard sales last week I found these...

... and what a difference! Not only do they look better, they were a bargain. They were marked $10 but I asked the lady if she'd take $5 for them and she did! I got 4 panels... perfect for the two windows in my bedroom. I think it looks much better even if close to the same color! Amazing what a longer style and different material will do.
