I think it is time for a new curtain.

This is a picture of the edge of my kitchen curtain. The sun has faded it so that it is white instead of the deep red that it is supposed to be. I have been telling myself to make a new one for months now but procrastination struck again. But today was the day. I made myself get off the couch and get started. Mainly cuz my husband was watching nascar and I wasn't interested. lol anyway, moving on....
here she is. It only took an hour from taking the old one down...regaining my breath from the dust storm that hanging up the new one. I can't believe how simple it turned out to be. Just think what I could accomplish if I put my mind to it. I know, it IS scary to think about.
The fabric that I used was from the thrift store. I paid $5 for 5 yards. Now I can't decide what to do with the rest. Maybe some placemats. I am sure it will be awhile if it is anything like the curtain. lol.
This is just a shot of the top of a few cabinets. I just love signs. This one makes me smile.


  1. Your new curtains are lovely. The warm colors blend in nicely. I can't believe you got 5 yards of fabric for $5.

  2. Nice job!!! I'm the same way....I procrastinate till forever!

  3. The new curtain looks great. I don't have curtains in my kitchen because I took them down because they were plain and blah. I still haven't made any new ones. I don't know if I'm going to. lol Have a great day.

  4. Wow! That looks great, Lisa! I had to chuckle at what you said about the "dust storm" when you took the old curtain down... I took the one over my kitchen sink down to wash it a few days ago (I'm ashamed to tell you how long it had been since it's last washing...) and I nearly choked to death! *LOL*
    I know what you mean about procrastination... it would scare me to death at how much I could get done if I would just "do it"!!

  5. The curtain looks great! I love the picture of your cute doggies by the way. Have a wonderful day!

  6. I think the curtain looks terrific. Your kitchen is so pretty. I love signs too and the cabinet tops are great. You could do a runner perhaps? Great deal on the fabric!
