WORKING IN THE KITCHEN… Window Treatments

Yesterday I left off saying that I was headed to Ikea.  Well, shortly after my son and I arrived (and I mean shortly), he said he was sick and well… all kinds of stuff happenedSick smile

So my trip was cut short, but I did manage to grab a curtain rod.  While I was there, I had my hubs hang some bamboo blinds for me in the kitchen.  I’m not sold on them as of yet (I’m thinking they need to be hung higher), but I do love the fabric that I’m using for curtains

The fabric is by Robert Allen.  The name of the fabric is Khanjali and the colorway is Glacier.  I purchased my fabric from Calico Corners.

Pardon the dark pics, did I mention that now I have TWO sick kids??? So I’m working around a lotSmile

I actually purchased this fabric to use in the family room, but decided that I loved it in the kitchen too.  I have 12 yards and I’m using all 12 at this window. I don’t want the window to look “cheated” out of fabric!

I still have to do a lot of hemming.  I decided against using the campaign dresser in here.  I think I’m going to try a window seat instead.  Cabinet hardware should be here soon so the kitchen is moving right along! I do need to do a few things in my dining room and living room to prepare for Thanksgiving so I’m probably going to be bouncing between these rooms in the next few weeks.

BTW, as you can see, I have yet to add the seats back to the chairs… I’m hoping I have enough fabric left over from the windows to use on them (fingers crossed!).

It’s November! Can you believe it?!?!?

I thought I recognized that fabric. I love a pattern at a window.

I might be in the minority here, but I think that the blinds are too dark. The contrast between the drapes and the blinds is too much. I think they take away from the drapes. I love those drapes though!

Oh, I forgot. I think they need to be higher too. Starting right behind the rod. :)

Love the fabric and blinds on the window. The space ir really comign together nicekly. I do agree that the blinds should be hung higher and I love the idea of a window seat. It would make the eating area so cozy. Can't wait to see the finished space.

I love the fabric of your window treatment! It looks so soft and bouncy! By the way, the print is also love! Although, you can do more on your dining table like putting a vase with flowers and such. LeakProofRoof.net

They look lovely,The details at the bottom of the curtains are simple, yet they’re very appealing. It adds character to the entire window treatments. Congratulations on your window treatment!

Window treatments is an essential part of decorating a house or an office. The main reasons why use curtain is to add decoration and for privacy as well. Furthermore, privacy is a major reason for people to fix curtains. What with complexes and apartments being constructed with minimum foot area and corridors, it has become essential to safeguard our security and privacy. Curtains prevent invaders to peep in and also provides comfort and a feeling of not being disturbed with the extra glare of lighting and vehicle movement. You can read more here.
