Finally put up the 'stage' curtains. I had this idea when we first purchased our house and never got around to it... the arch is right across from the stairs which makes a great 'house'. I picked up an inexpensive curtain rod from IKEA when we were in Denver and I had the curtains left over from our rental house. I installed the rod very close to the ceiling so if I remove the curtains it is not as noticeable... I sewed two midsize curtains together to create the long stage curtains.
Life's a Stage... and now my kids can 'play'!
