Simple Curtains


For years my laundry room has simply had a valance over the window top.
Our nearest neighbors aren't super close on that side and I liked having the sunshine come in.
 Recently a gentleman has started parking his 18 wheeler in the cul-de-sac by our home.
I don't mind that at all, but he does come and go at hours when I am usually in my night clothes.
Daughter, too, for that matter.  
My husband and I decided it might be time to put up a curtain over the window.
The room is kind of small and non descriptive as far as color.  I thought a pop of color would be nice.

In keeping with my goals of using materials I have on hand, I pulled through my fabric and found a piece to use.
I had just enough of this simple red checked fabric to make two panels.
My original plan had been to machine embroider down the sides for detail.
However, when I tried my sample I felt like the pattern was being lost in the checks.

So a few hours entertainment for me.
Curtains for the laundry room.
Cost -- nothing new....this fabric was a piece that was in a huge box I bought years ago.

  1. Wonderful to be able to use something already on hand to meet a need. Pretty, too!

    1. Thank you. I am hoping to pull together something "new" for the living room windows. I'm still tossing ideas around in my head.

  2. Gingham is always so cheerful. I've always liked curtains on a window in spite of the decorating trends being to leave them bare.
