The last couple of things I did were to make curtains for one window and fix up a shelf.
First the shelf. I re-purposed an old wood shelf by priming it with a deep rust color spray paint, then lightly coating it with the same blackened bronze colored paint I used on the cabinet hinges. It turned out great. Dan mounted it on my backsplash and tada!
|my fabric for curtains|
I spent a lot of time looking at different types of kitchen curtains and settled on a simple tie-up version. Using the existing hardware, I just needed to hem the orange fabric, fold it in half and sew it together making a huge rectangle. I left about an inch open at the top in order to slide the curtain rod through.
|"Two lines over"|
REAL technical sewing terms here.
I draped the ties over the curtain rod and gathered the orange fabric up at the bottom. I tied a knot with the ties and arranged the curtains.
Not bad! It could use some steaming, but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. :)
So FINALLY, the kitchen is finished.
|And from there...|
|Before: The table and four chairs fit, but it made|
accessing the built in hutch awkward.
|We removed two chairs and now have more space to move.|
|Okay, so how cute is my cat?|
Yes, I'm aware she's on the table, but that is HER window.
Now... about the bathroom...
