In our kitchen we have a "double door" so to speak, that lets in a lot of light. I put it in quotes because it is actually only one door, but it has the look as though it could be two. I love that it lets in lots of sunlight, however, since our house faces east, we get the west sun through our back doors so when we eat dinner, it is a little uncomfortable. It gets pretty hot in the evening, even if it's cold out because of the sun, and we usually have to move our table slightly one way so we don't have sun shining in our eyes. Here is what it originally looked like.
I am not really the crafty one in my family, so I made my mom come over and help me with this project. WARNING: If you are a perfectionist, working with burlap is going to be quite a struggle!
First we laid it out and decided that we were going to use every inch because of the size of the windows, so we cut it in half since we were making two equal sized curtains.
|I know, it's a little hard to see because of the sunlight.|
|Here is one during the day...I absolutely love that it still lets a lot of sun it, but it's not as direct!|
About 7 months later I finally added the final touch to my burlap curtains! I found these cute burlap looking flowers at Hobby Lobby and knew instantly that I had to have them! I just hot glued them and pinned them for an extra hold.
Here they are:
I absolutely love them!!!
