I finally got round to making curtains for the kitchen!



I'm pleased with how they turned out; they're just how I wanted them. They're just panel curtains and purely for decorative purposes - I don't need to ever close them since I have venetian blinds, and besides... that's the fire station just across the street and who'd want to pull the curtain on hot firemen?





Hah! I knew that would grab your attention!  Cheesy But before you get all excited about all these hot men in uniform... I'd better confess that I have never actually seen any there, I'm pretty sure they're just administrative offices on this side of the building... bummer! But a girl can dream, right?

And another confession: my kitchen is never this tidy really - When I want to take photos of my house I just shove all the mess out of shot. There, now you know.  Wink

These are really cool, the color really adds a pop to your kitchen!  Love the print also!  I wish I had windows like this in my kitchen!

I love the retroness (if that's a word! Wink) of the kitchen. The curtains adds to that feel and matches the table, appliances, and other decorations well.

Perfect curtains.  They look fantastic in your kitchen and your color scheme.   I love the way they turned out.

I love that these go all the way down to the floor.  They look great in your kitchen.

I love your kitchen!  The choice of fabric is perfect.  And the table and chairs - I am so jealous!

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

I love your fabric! I am envious! It would match my original 1970s avocado green fridge and stove! I know the feeling about shoving everything out of the shot, I did the same thing when I took a pic of my apron from a swap in front of my stove!  It looks great!
