Kitchen curtains

The only rooms in our house that we haven't painted are the kitchen and bathroom. I think both rooms intimidate me because there is so much that I would like to do to them both that we just can't afford . . . so I avoid doing anything.

But then last week I was at the Fabric Warehouse just down the road, and found the most fabulous Waverly stripe fabric . . . on sale for $4.98 a yard! I had been thinking about doing curtains for the kitchen (the ones up now came with the house and aren't really my thing), and finding that fabric made up my mind for me. Our kitchen has always seemed kind of monotone and boring to me, so I wanted to brighten it up a bit and add some color. Also get rid of the valance and get just a little bit more natural light in there. Voila!






And of course, don't forget . . . November 1st I will be doing a drawing for a pint of my peach salsa! Just become a follower of my blog and you will automatically be entered to win! (Hmm, sounds kind of car salesman-y, but someone really will win.)

Nice job! I bought a bunch of fabric at JoAnn's the other day for our bedroom curtains. Home decor fabric was 50% off! It has been sitting in our room ever since, because I decided I need to line them, and so I need 9 yards of lining fabric......... boo.

I actually like the color of your kitchen! :)

Wow! The "before" curtains are kind of sad and your "after" curtains make your windows look much more crisp and clean.
Nice job!
