Kitchen Curtains

Good day blogger friend. Today is day two of my Kitchy Kitchen Dream Makeover, or how to turn a rather ho hum old kitchen into a strawberry lovers dream. Exactly one year ago today, I purchased a vintage hand embroidered tablecloth on Ebay for a mere $8.00. When I saw it, I just could not believe my eyes as to how perfect it would be for the kitchen I was about to create. I had already purchased and received the wallpaper, which dare I say cost me only $2.99 per single roll and I used 7 rolls. I knew right away that I was going to transform this tablecloth into valences.
 These were lovingly hand embroidered by someone. 
I wish I could tell her how much I enjoy and love her work.

To make these, I just cut the tablecloth in half and used the larger piece of embroidery for the bigger window. I zig zag stitched the cut edge and then turned it over with enough room to put a curtain rod through and stitched again.


If you would like to do something like this for your kitchen here is what's available on Ebay today


  1. Love your kitchen!!! I did something similar with my bedroom curtains, but not nearly so nice. Is your wallpaper still available? I didn't like mine when I moved in thirteen years ago and it is STILL there. Did I mention that I have a problem with making decisions?

  2. Wowsers! I ADORE that strawberry paper! I've been trying to convince the hubs that vintage rose wallpaper will be great in our kitchen, but he isn't buying it. Your kitchen is a dream and an inspiration.

  3. Hello,

    Kitchen curtains are used as a covering for windows to enhance kitchen setup. Some of the common kitchen curtain designs include valance only, tiered, swag and sheer curtains. Thank you...

  4. Hi Lisa,

    Your kitchen looks adorable. I love the clock you made too, but for some reason, Blogger was not letting me comment on that post.

    We are deep in the throes of last-week-before-opening, and hope that you and your daughter are still planning on coming to the show. We are excited about the prospect of finally meeting you in person....



I appreciate each and every one of your comments. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me.
