Curtains in the Kitch

I recently got some curtains from my friend that she didn't want anymore. I, of course, gladly took them! I love re-gifting and blessing others with things we just don't want/need anymore.  I first mentioned these curtains here. But the length was just a little too short for me. The curtains are 84" in height, which is the standard size most places sell. But I like my window treatments to drag a bit on the floor. Here are some pictures of before I tweaked them. 

I went to Target and picked up some cheap curtain hooks. They sell them in two sizes and I opted for the bigger ones. It was such a easy fix and upgrade. I think it looks a lot better. It definitely makes it look more casual, but I like that style more anyways.

 Here is it with the curtains closed. I like how it drags a touch. I think the weight of the material is perfect for the Minnesota winter months. It adds the warmth to my kitchen that I was looking for.

Now I just want to PAINT these walls! The beige is driving me N-U-T-S!  I hope to paint the walls in the next weeks. Any ideas of colors I should do? I am thinking a celery/butter/pale yellow color. Nothing too crazy. I want bright and cheerful.
