I mentioned the other day that I used some left over fabric from our kitchen drapes to make new pillows. Well, I never shared the pics of the new drapes!
Our kitchen has a window that looks out to our neighbors. So the window badly needed something. I really wanted to make a roman shade, but to be honest I was a little intimidated to try it. I saw tons of tutorials, but none of them really spoke to me. So, I decided to just do some regular panels using clips at the top.
See, look how plain everything looks. I bought a tension rod which made this project way easier. Then I bought some curtain clips. I feel like curtain clips are better than making a slot (not sure what you really call it) for the rod to go through. Then I used my favorite no sew tape and just made straight panels. I think they turned out ok ;)
They really help punch up the kitchen. I still wish I had taken the plunge and made a roman shade, but oh well! I happened to make these the Saturday before the little man decided to arrive. Just in time!
Today MR.P is at the Masters. He is absolutely, ridiculously excited! I am excited for him too!! This is his first time there. Hope he gets a lot more opportunities to visit. Anyway, Smith and I are headed there later today to pick him up. Then we are headed to the beach! MR.P is going for work, but Smith and I are going to keep him company :) We tried his bathing suit on yesterday to make sure it fit ;)
It's a tiny bit big, but he doesn't mind. He said he needs some room to grow this summer :)
