We've been in our house for 10 1/2 years and other than the main living room, have never hung curtains. I've bought several over the years but never put them up because they ended up being not quite the right color or whatever.
I was almost ready to finally take them all to Value Village or attempt to sell them on the neighborhood buy/sell Facebook page, but then I decided that the light blue ones that I intended for the living room (the one room that already has curtains, but I'm changing the whole color scheme in that room as soon as we get around to painting) don't go well with the current wall color nor will they work with the future wall color I have in mind, but they will work in the upstairs loft (at least for now). Then I decided that the dark red ones I had originally intended for the upstairs loft would go just fine in the master bedroom for now, until we eventually repaint our red accent wall. Done and done.
I also finally got around to buying curtains for each of the girls rooms, so we hung those too and now the only room that doesn't yet have curtains is the dining room.
