I’ve been in this house for almost a year and never got around to putting together a window treatment for the kitchen. Part of the issue was that I like the light that comes in and I like to look out when I’m puttering in the sink. The other issue was my budget. I didn’t have one. The move was expensive and the entire house needed painting. Ok. It didn’t “need” it. It was gold. Nothing wrong with gold but I like cool colors. The paint and grunt work alone wore out my budget and my back. So the little kitchen window sat empty and open.
I was shopping at Walmart (I feel like I say that a lot. But it’s a small town…we don’t have a lot of choices). when I saw these cute dish towels with a pattern that I liked. And then the bulb went off. The towels went into the cart along with some curtain clips. I already had the curtain rod sitting in the basement storage area. Less than five minutes later I had a window treatment.
The “vases” are just old baby food jars that got a coat of spray paint on the inside. I topped them off with some dollar store flowers.
Easy. Fast. Frugal. Just what I was looking for.
