Kitchen Window Before:
Here's the latest offender: the kitchen window. It actually has a decent roman shade window treatment, with a fancy pull string- but it's just so bland and boring! I love the smaller top window, but there are times when I'm making dinner that the sun just glares me right in the face and that problem needed addressing. So, after 2 quick trips to JoAnn's for fabric and trim (armed with my 40% off coupons, one for each), I sewed up this curtain. This was so easy, I simply hemmed the edges, and then folded it over to make a pocket for the rod to go through (I didn't line it, since I left the roman shade underneath for privacy, plus, when is anyone ever going to check that kind of thing, save yourself the trouble!). Since it was just a straight square of fabric, I bunched it up and tied it with the ribbons until I got it at the height I wanted.
Kitchen Window Now:
P.S. Please ignore the rod, I just found something to throw it up there to see how I liked it, and haven't gotten around to changing it yet.
