(Edited to add: I’m resurrecting this post to join in on Donna’s Saturday Night Special Non-Traditional Window Treatments link up.)
Yes, I said FINAL! At this point I’m so tired of curtains I don’t even want to think about them ever again.
So….if you really don’t like this one, please don’t tell me, ‘K? (just kidding. well… maybe not)
In a nutshell, I had slapped some burlap pieces up on a rope with clothespins and called it done for the kitchen.
Only Mike didn’t like it at all.
And most of you weighed in on Mike’s side.
Heck, I even had one of your husbands chiming in!
So with my tail between my legs, sniffling back my ‘woe is me' tears, I set out Saturday morning to remove the offending curtains and start over.
Ok, I know I’m not supposed to share this, but in the spirit of my blog name (you know, the confessions part?)…can I just say that I hated you all just a little bit for a moment there?
(it must have been that wench that Suzanne from Meridian Road was talking about in this recent post. )
Don’t worry, I’m over it now.
And really, I’m glad I made the change after all.
‘Cause you were right.
And so was Mike.
See the dining room curtain?
Don’t ask me why I just didn’t do that in the first place! For some unknown reason I keep treating the kitchen window like it’s in a whole different house, instead of open to the dining room.
This one is another no-sew window treatment. (if it turns out anyone likes it I’ll post a tutorial)
edited to add- I posted the tutorial here for those who would like to try this.
I had a tough time getting photos, the sun was so bright.
I even went back and made the dining room curtains more permanent by sewing the ties to the top of the panels and getting rid of the cafe rings.
There’re a lot more strips on it now, so it looks a lot fuller.
Then I finished the job by adding some ties to the bump out window curtains too.
Now they all match.
As much as anything ever will in my house.
So now that they’re all done I’m calling it quits on curtains for a good long while.
Oh, and in case you were wondering….
Mike doesn’t hate them.
That’s good enough for me.
