As I was browsing Target's selection, I got a bit peeved that each curtain panel was like $30. Seriously? Why don't they sell them in pairs? Weird.
|Testing out the size...|
Then I noticed that the shower curtains were indeed much cheaper, and they were the perfect size for our large windows. BOOM. So I picked up a pair and took them home. $20 for a curtain. I chose their blue Bird Shower Curtain in their Threshold line, available in-store.

I didn't end up liking the one I chose for the bedroom (too sheer), but I did keep one for the guest room. I hung the panel up to check the fit (Duke installed the basic curtain rods) and then I snipped the thing in half.
|Cut it straight up the middle!|
I did sew up the cut ends, though to be honest I didn't do any folding, pressing, or pinning. I just rapid-sewed the thing up. Kind of janky. But I like the panels a lot, and I think they add something to the room to make it look more put together!
|Finished product, in poor lighting, but not too shabby!|
I'm still shopping for curtains for the bedroom to solve our problem, but I'm also browsing for new, more gender-neutral bedding. (Now that we're cohabitating, my turquoise/pink bedspread is a bit much. Duke says he doesn't care, but I think it may be time for a change.) So I'll post back if I figure out that situation!
