Raise the Curtain

As I contemplated what my first post should be about, I finally came across a beautiful idea. One thing I loathe is clutter, and in the corner of my kitchen, I have chaos. Our kitchen is a bit on the tiny side, so I store items where I can find room. We are talking about onions on the shelves, potatoes, even a whale of a pale full of oatmeal on the bottom of my butcher block table. I needed to find a way to hide this disorder. So why not a curtain? Here is what I came up with.
Before ( Clutter Zone)




Measure, and pin everything before sewing.

Turquoise paint is a must have in my household


I cut out my own stencil, and painted.



One of my favorite vases!


I love the finished curtain. So clean cut.





Here are my 5 top reasons why I absolutely love my new curtain.
1. The chich curtain cleans up the kitchen. Did I mention how much I dislike clutter?
2. I have been trying to find a way to bring color into my kitchen, so it flows with my dining room. I think this is a start.
3. I adore the numbers.
4. My 14 month old son no longer throws everything on the floor. I am finally relieved of cleaning up onion skins, and oatmeal off the floor.
5. This project only took me 1 hour. Just enough time for me to do when the children are taking naps.

If you have a reason you love my new cutting table curtain, please feel free to post.

Until next time,
Melissa

I like the look of numbers, and 4 is for the amount of people in my family.
