The sun decided to come out so I am trying to soak up as much of it as possible!
I am still carrying things from the cottage kitchen to the new kitchen at the Renovation Ranch...
So it was the perfect day for it!
It's basically moving day but with a shorter distance to tote!
I wanted to share the new café curtains I made for the window over the sink.
They are made from the gauziest linen I could find in a clotted cream color.
I found the linen here, online a few weeks ago and was anxious to get them made...last week I had the chance while the plumbers were here.
Gray lines Linen is a New York Company that has the most amazing linens and at fabulous prices!
I have been using them for years at clients homes.
For the kitchen window project, I needed to keep things light and airy because this window faces north...
Making the kitchen feel a little dark.
I knew I wanted something classic and timeless and not too fussy.So, I decided to use a French pleat style for the café curtain and a relaxed, fixed roman at the top.
After washing my new linen in very hot water and drying them in the dryer, I got to work.
This was the first time I have made a fixed roman without using a interlining and back lining and I am still not sure if they will hang right.
A fixed roman shade is basically a shade that does not adjust up and down. I like to use them when I don't want to lower them in the evening and...
It saves time and money when you are having them made by someone.
I used a simple nickel rod with clip hooks on the café curtains. Another first for me, I used the clips style rings and I like how they look in this installation.
In the Spring, my kitchen window looks over a very old lilac bush and I can hardly wait for May when it is in full bloom!
So, this is where we are on the kitchen project. We are thrilled with how it is coming along!
I need to get back to toting groceries and dishes from one house to the other but I will show you our new pantry soon!
Here's a sneak peak!
I'm still working on my chalk board!
Thanks for stopping by...
Have a wonderful rest of the day!
