How was everyone's weekend? There was crazy snow here on Friday as we were driving to the mountains for a little ski cabin weekend. We had a great time lounging around and being lazy.
Pictures above: 1. the snow in downtown Pittsburgh as I was leaving work around 1 pm, 2. the view from the cabin, 3. yes, these are my friends and I love them, 4. the biggest pours of champagne ever, 5. the dogs after we picked them up from Jarrod's parents' to take them home - they were so excited and then immediately fell asleep when we got home. Hope everyone had a fun weekend too and that the snow/cold didn't ruin it!
So now, I want to finally post kitchen curtains I finished last weekend! We had left up the curtains from the prior owners for FAR too long. I hated these curtains, but needed to keep them for privacy. One of the issues with new curtains was the fact that there are 3 windows (in this TEENY room) and each window is a different size. So, buying curtains wasn't really an option.
Also, this kitchen is the weirdest most hodge podge layout of all time. Not sure where the original fridge was, but the fridge now partially blocks a window. Additionally the previous owners put a random cart thing in between the fridge and stove for extra counter space. This cart also partially blocks this dumb window. When (if) we re-do our kitchen, we're thinking we will just brick up this window because it is just in the way and there are 2 other windows in this room. Argh.
Anyways, in the meantime, we needed new curtains like whoa. I picked this cute fabric from Joann's. I wanted something fun and bright and a little retro-y since that is sorta the current style of the kitchen. Plus it is hard to find something dude friendly for a kitchen fabric.
Here is the partial "before" we were dealing with - I forgot to take pics before I took all the old curtains down.
You'll notice that the new curtains are in some of the pics. Disregard for the final reveal - here you go!
I love how they turned out and once I got on a roll, they were so easy to make! I just used Stitch Witchery to do the hems and then a hot glue gun to add the pom-poms (I.love.pom.poms!!!!!) I'm bad at remembering to measure, sooooo I totally ran out of pom poms :( I decided I didn't need them on the bottom section of the one window because of the plants or for the weird window behind the fridge since it's half-hidden and will hopefully be demo'ed at some point. Maybe if I'm feeling inspired, I'll add pom pom's to the other panels later.
What kind of window treatments do you like in your kitchen? Are you pom pom crazy like me? Hope everyone had a nice weekend!!
