I sewed some window treatments for the kitchen a few weeks ago.
I bought the fabric a while back for $3 per yard.
So, this whole project was very inexpensive. The rods were the most costly part.
It's hard to get good photos because there's a covered patio outside that keeps
a lot of light from coming in the kitchen window. And, it's a cloudy day.
I also sewed a panel almost 9' long to add a little softness and color over the sliding glass door.
It's wide enough to cover the vertical blind when it's all the way open.
The fabric is a woven plaid with orange, reds, brown, white and a bit of yellow.
The color is actually closer to the two photos above. But, here's a close up to show the plaid.
It looks great with the tablecloth I'm using right now. It has a lot of the same colors.
The colors in this photo are more accurate...
We have a cinnamon red KitchenAid stand mixer on our Island.
The floor tile is a terra cotta like color. And, I've been adding some more things that tie in
with the colors of the window fabric...like this antique metal tray with painted roses...
A pretty plate I saw at Macy's and just had to have.
It sits on a plate stand on the counter.
And, for a little contrast and fun, I have an antique typewriter sitting on the kitchen desk.
I grew up with an Underwood typewriter like this. I've been keeping an eye out for one.
I was excited to find this one in a local antique shop this summer for a good price.
I guess you could say I've been cookin' up some color and fun in our kitchen.
These small touches sure did a lot to transform the space. We love it!
I'll post more photos when I get it all put together the way I like.
And, if I can figure out how to get good photos in this not-so-bright space.
