I've been wanting to replace the curtain over my kitchen sink for several months now. It's actually just a piece of pink chiffon fabric draped over a tension curtain rod. I wasn't sure what I wanted to hang up in its place though.
Then I saw the perfect pink and red 50's cafe curtain at an antique mall a couple of weeks ago. Perfect in every way except the length, too long, and the price, $38! So, I came up with a plan.
I got sweet hubby to design a scallop pattern for the top of the curtain. We make a great team; if he can design it, I can make it. I bought pink and red paisley, vintage-looking fabric at Hobby Lobby along with a package of plastic cafe curtain rings. Using an old white sheet for the lining, I made it just like the one in the antique mall. Except the price of mine was only $12.
And, TA-DA! It absolutely brightens up and cheers up the whole room! It puts a smile on my face when I walk into the kitchen every morning to make my coffee.
Thanks for stopping by! Your visits and comments make me as happy as my little curtain does.
