Nice, but with issues...

Truthfully, I was a thrilled at the value when I ordered these curtains, however when they arrived I was a bit annoyed.

First, the color of the Sage is closer on the spectrum to blue rather than green as I was hoping - no biggie though.

Second, the horrendous smell of the curtains. We have 8 panels in a large sunny room and when I hung them the place wreaked of fish - go figure. It's been about a week and the smell has not yet subsided. I guess it's the synthetic backing or perhaps the dye, but I'm hoping once we open some windows (can't right now due to spring pollen) and air out the house the smell will go away permanently. Glad I don't have a cat.

Third, they look and feel like cheap hotel curtains - I talking motel 6. I guess it's the dull weave of the cotton fabric with the white backing, but they just look kinda stale and plain. If I really wanted to perfect the look, I'd stain em' up with some foreign substance.

Finally - get ready to iron - the wrinkles from the packaging have not gone away after hanging for a week. Unfortunately it looks like I'll be dragging out the steamer. Hopefully I won't melt anything.

Otherwise, they fit fine (lengthwise and width) and diffuse the light as good as expected - note they are not blackout curtains but come pretty close.
