A Quick Kitchen Area Update

We don't really need window coverings for privacy or light control on most of our windows.

This kitchen window has been bare for over a year since we moved in to the house. I really felt it needed something to finish it off a bit. I would have loved to get a custom woven shade, but that's just not in the budget right now.

So....I ordered these great off-white panels from (love their home items at great prices). Each panel was only $19.99 and I had a free shipping coupon...can't beat that!

I decided they needed a little something something...So, I took some 4 inch wired burlap ribbon I had on hand for a bottom trim.

I used fabric transfer to add a knife, spoon and form image horizontally to the ribbons. I put the ribbon 14" above the bottom hem.

It just makes the panels a little more "me".

Another look for less...gotta love that.


  1. Love, love, love your new drapes in the kitchen! I'm a drapery fan myself and think windows look better with a little fabric to soften the edges. I love how they coordinate with your chair slip covers. You are quite clever the way you used the burlap ribbon and transfers. That just makes it! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Very printy. I love the spoons on the curtains. Excellant.

    Take care,
