With the arrival of summer, my kitchen has returned to it's summertime state of 9,450,000 degrees in the afternoon. In the wintertime it is really dark in there despite the big patio door, so I usually just have lace sheers. (Yes, the chandelier is off center, it was just a last minute addition to get more light for wintertime dinners.)
Last year in Kansas I picked up yards and yards of this vintage fabric which screamed new kitchen curtains to me sometime in the past two weeks.
They are doing the job of keeping it cooler. And I love how they look like an old tablecloth.
Usually sewing curtains makes me curse up a storm, I can never get the measuring right and I always seem to cut them too short, ruining yards of fabric.
This time I draped the fabric over the curtain rod, pinned it in place on the rod and then cut.
Worked like a charm, no cursing needed.
