With the majority of my kitchen renovation project completed, I can focus on decorating (my favorite part of any home project). I’ll admit, I’m very selective when it comes to how I furnish my home for a few reasons. First, it’s a reflection of me. How I maintain my home says a lot about the kind of person I am. Second, I want it to be warm & inviting for family & friends. Third, I know I have to live with my choices for a long time so I want accessories & furnishings to be just right.
I spent weeks looking for curtains in a style that incorporated the golden yellow, sage green, & cranberry red that were in other elements throughout my kitchen. It’s hard to find things in mainstream stores that aren’t mainstream so I decided to make them myself. I ordered a beautiful Arts & Crafts-style template, purchased fabric paint, & sewed the curtains so they fit the space. I visualized the finished product & got to work making it a reality.
It took hours over the course of a few days but they are finally done. The curtains brighten the space & make it very inviting. I absolutely love them!!
Handmade curtains, rugs, & decorative items personalize a space. I hope these photos inspire you to create something unique for yourself or someone you love.
