I'm tackling the windows of my kitchen this week. This is a tough one for several reasons:
A. I'm not good with curtains. I have a difficult time envisioning treatments on windows and when I think about an idea for them, I usually think "that's totally going to suck" and never do them. The exception being the roman shades in the boys' room. I love those.
B. It has to be dirt cheap. Cause we're broke. Have you priced curtains lately? I know I'm going to have to make them myself.
I think I've found a great fabric that is cheap and will bring in texture and has a color that will fit in brilliantly with my kitchen: Burlap! I found a few examples on line that I really like and will be super easy to make. The most expensive part will be the bay window curtain rod.
Here's one example that I particularly love:
Living My Life Outside the Box blog. She did such a fabulous job with this!
I also want white sheers to go in between the burlap panels that can be closed when the sun gets too hot. I also want them to be almost floor length.
I'm off to the store with all my window measurements!
