When I was young café curtains were in almost every kitchen. Gradually they were replaced by mini-blinds, wooden blinds, roller shades and bamboo shades. I had 1 inch wooden blinds with a valance in my kitchen, but like everything else, after so many years I wanted a new look. Café curtains are the replacements!
I’ve been noticing that café curtains are being used again and decided to make some for my kitchen. Here’s a peek of the fabric. I haven’t sewn them yet, I was just testing out different lengths. I bought this fabric last year with the intention to use it for cushion covers and a window treatment in the kitchen but over the year I started rethinking that….I just wasn’t crazy over the fabric anymore. Ugh…..why does that happen….I hate when that happens!
These sunny yellow curtains are hung just above the sill.
These cute curtains were made from napkins, no sewing involved. Another no sew method, café curtains would be easy to create using heat tape. They use so little fabric you could change the the look often or for every season.
I’m starting to paint the kitchen cabinets now so the work is progressing. Can’t wait til it’s done!
What are you working on? Got any projects going?
