Kitchen Curtains

My sisters & I are a great design team.  Once the ideas start flowing we tackle the project with great enthusiasm.  

Ever since my new window blinds were installed I couldn't wait for Mary & Susan to help me choose new curtains for the kitchen windows.
The solution was to use 2 Target 60X104 tablecloths, a black curtain rod & ring clips.
No sewing involved! 
The muscle behind the project.
I'm not a fan of climbing ladders.
 The extra fabric was folded over at the top.
The new curtains add warmth to the space.
We also added a new area rug from Lowe's.
Above the sink we made a valance out of 4 matching napkins.
The only sewing for this was to zig zag stitch the edges together,
The pleats were made by just pinching the fabric & clipping with the rings.
I LOVE the new look & feel in the kitchen!

Come back tomorrow to see the master bedroom transformation.

So clever to use tablecloths and thereby avoid sewing. Those clips sound like the way to go.

You're right--the curtains gave the room such a warm feel!! One of my favorite makeovers you gals accomplished!

Very nice. I'm sure that took quite some work.

Awesome job, Carol. I love the "no sewing" part. Great idea!

It does add warmth to your room! ^_^ Nice job! I think it goes well with the other elements in the space. It has the color that is closely related to the shades of the furniture, even with the area rug and place mats.

I think it’s not yet too late if I greet you a happy Valentine’s Day. Haha! I love the color of your kitchen curtains. It really gives a very inviting vibe to everyone. The color stimulates appetite, so people would really be delighted to eat if they have this kind of kitchen setting! :) It’s wonderful!
