Lately, we’ve been working our way through the Little House one room at a time, deep cleaning, organizing, and finishing up any little projects that were left half done. As we’ve been working, I’ve realized that most of the rooms in the LH don’t feel much different than when we moved in. We’ve painted and even hung a few things on the walls, but for the most part, they still feel empty. I’ve decided the reason is a lack of curtains.
Curtains just make a room feel more finished (and the Little House could definitely use a dose of “finished”). So I’ve decided to try and get some curtains up, even if they’re simple and temporary. First up? The kitchen.
There are two windows in our kitchen, a small one over the sink and a larger one at the end of the room.
I’m pretty sure that I want to make a faux Roman shade for the larger window (maybe something like YHL did here?), but I’m not sure what I want to do for the other window. Because it is so small, I’m worried that a Roman shade might block too much light.
Instead, I’m thinking of going with something like this (the original link is broken, so if you know where this came from let me know and I’ll link up to it).
Oh, and I think I might use this fabric. It’s actually curtains from Ikea that I bought for another room and decided not to use. It seems a waste not to use them for something.
I’ve got a few free nights coming up, so I hope to tackle these curtains this week!
Do you have curtains in your kitchen? What would you do on the smaller window? Is that Ikea fabric crazy or what? I’m still not sure what I think about it.
