A Necessary Purchase

6.09.2017

Do you live with a snorer? I do. Even though he doesn't snore every night and not always loudly there are those times that he does and I cannot sleep with any noise. I nudge him to get him to turn over to see if that will make him get quiet, but that doesn't always work. I have to have my sleep or I'm going to be cranky so upstairs to a guestroom I go with miss Bailey in tow. She goes where mama goes. Problem is light floods in there way too early. So what to do?
Start shopping online for some curtains with blackout liners. These weren't even on my radar, but they were a necessary purchase.


I found the perfect curtains with the softest of blue stripes with blackout liner at Pottery Barn of all places. I didn't know they offered blackout liners as an option on some of the curtains. 

Here is a reminder of the cute blue patterned curtains. I still love them and have the same ones hanging in the sunroom to enjoy. These are lined, but the light just pours through them and it gets light in here before six in the morning and bam, I wake up. The few times I have to sleep in here it needs to stay dark longer than that.

  When they arrived I opened them up and of course they needed to be ironed. Ugh, I ironed them and then when Mr. Savvy got home I asked him to help me hang them. We got them up and we had used the pole pocket over the old rod. Guess what? They were so thick I couldn't push them open all the way so back to the drawing board. We had to go to Pottery Barn which is not that far from us and I bought one of their rods and the clip rings. After we got home I was hoping he would go ahead and put the new rod up. After batting my lashes a few times he broke down and got out of his recliner to help me out. Rod up and the curtains open up beautifully. Thank you, dear again.



Peek at the new look on the bed.

Now, I'm just waiting for him to snore again so I can see how dark the room will stay in the early morning. That's right dear, you have permission to snore. 😀
Just not all the time.

Wishing y'all a fabulous weekend!

  4. You can buy blackout liners separately, I got mine at Paul's curtains on line so you can use your existing curtains. They work great!!

    1. Wouldn't they take an extra rod? I was ready for a lighter feel in here anyway. Thanks

  5. Love those curtains! There are also great linen curtains from Pottery Barn Kids with great blackout liners as well. And for the snoring, what's helped my husband is having him sleep on two pillows, making sure he sleeps on his side, and with a pillow in between his legs. Hope you get some good sleep, in either room!

  6. They look great!
    Blackout curtains also insulate well.
    Good luck with the snoring. I do the same thing--head to the guest room when I can't take it.

  7. Kim and others commenting on snoring: Snoring often is a sign of sleep apnea which causes interrupted sleep with short periods of not breathing. Most snorers are not aware of the interruptions and will insist they're fine. Apnea is very serious, and adds stress to the heart and other organs. Please speak to your doctor and look it up on the internet. There's a simple test and it can be alieveated with a Cpack.

    1. Yes, we know all about sleep apnea and a sleep study was done, but did not show he had it. Thanks

  8. Always a good idea to sleep in our guest rooms occasionally to see what could take the comfort factor out for our guests.

  9. You are the queen of bedrooms and I often look to you for advice. I need something at the beach for keeping the morning light on and never thought about simple blackout drapes!

  12. Oh- I hate that. When I wake up in the middle of the night I have a horrible time getting back to sleep. Glad you found some liners that work...or you will see how they work when you get the chance.

    Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

    1. Yep, have those, too and sometimes I can still hear him and I get tired of the interrupted sleep so I go to the other room.

  15. Glad you found those drapes that will help. I am the opposite. I love to see the sun come through the windows as the sunrise is my favorite time of day. I can sleep through anything!! :) Love the soft stripes!

  16. I am going to check those out Kim. I am looking for a less expensive option for a client. These are really pretty and look custom! Thanks for the recommendation!

  17. My husband used a CPAP until he decided he didn't like it and quit. Now it's me telling him to rollover and quit snoring. I used air plugs but don't like them, so now it usually means one of use goes into the guest room.

  18. We bought a bed that lets us incline/decline the head, the knees, etc. Each night I just incline the header part of the mattress a little, and this has cut out almost all of the snoring because his airway is higher (his whole upper body is more inclined.) This has really helped :)

  19. I love your blue striped curtains.My husband snores sometimes too but can't tolerate the CPAP.But, he can wear BreatheRight Strips and guess what? They work. Just a thought.
