Curtains in my Kitchen!

My sister moved a few weeks ago. I mentioned this in my last post. When she moved, she and her husband ditched a ton of their stuff. Which means, I got a lot of their stuff.

One of the "stuff" I got was the curtains that were in their living room. They just happened to go perfectly in my kitchen.

This is the before shot:



This is what they looked like before I hemmed them. Yeah, way too long:


And the completely finished after:





As I said on Twitter, "Two windows in my house have curtains! Two!"

(My other curtains are these in my bedroom. And I finally lengthened them. Can you believe it?)

They are from IKEA. I hemmed them all by myself. I can't decide if I like the slight pooling at the bottom or not. I think I do, but I may change my mind.

Toward my front door:



I love how the small orange dots in the fabric subtly pick up the touches of mustard in my kitchen.


I only had to pay for the curtain rod, which I picked up at Walmart for $13. Not bad for a set of curtains!

It looks so much more finished and polished. It makes me want to put curtains up in every window, like now.
