Curtains and grandmas lamp

They are up but not hemmed, I'm not sure when I'll be able to bend to do them so it might be a slow job, pins don't look too bad do they? The lamp used to be covered in white paint. I stripped and stained it years ago b but it has never had anywhere to go in this house. So 11 years later and one silk lampshade - ta da! I'll put another picture of the curtains full length when they are done. Don't hold your breath though, it may be some time. 
Just realised I haven't told you about the curtains, the material was a charity shop find and they are lined with burgundy cotton. The heading is pleat tape with long necked swan hooks to make the pleats. More pictures might be needed to explain properly.
