I loved these curtains online but when I received them I realized how shiny the material was. I thought they might look better once I hung them up but they didn't. Due to packaging, the curtains were wrinkled so they need to be ironed. The difficult part is trying to iron the individual circle material pieces on the top of the curtain to make them flat. It was very time consuming and I only did one panel. Since the material is shiny, it looks a bit cheap for a dining room but would maybe work in a girls bedroom. Unfortunately, I am going to return them.
I ordered these for our front room. We went woth the ivory color. I wanted something with just a little fun to it while not distracting from the rest of the room. These were perfect for that. They are a little sheer but, I wasn't looking to block light with these. A light iron on low heat and they were hung. They look great.
