Kitchen Curtains

I had to take a break from the playhouse today, (only one side left!) so I fixed these little kitchen curtains I made several weeks ago. We are very close to our neighbors, so I wanted to have some privacy but still let a lot of sun in, so I made them cafe style in this bright yellow Ikea fabric.

I used up every bit I had, but they still came out a little too short on the bottom:

So today I finally added some extra gray fabric to the bottom. Love yellow and gray together. Looks much more finished now too. Well, in real life it does. Taking good pictures of rooms and decor is difficult!

It's really not that dark, here's a picture that shows the gray fabric better.
And it only took me about a year and half to make our kitchen a little home-ier, so yeah, I'm pretty driven. 

Today's crafting soundtrack: Mumford & Sons. I've been listening to their new album for about a month straight, and it shows no signs of stopping...


  1. I love the curtains and naturally the gray and yellow are my favorite.

    And yes, I will return blogging tomorrow.

  2. i love gray and yellow, too. and i also love your curtains. good job, friend! you're officially my inspiration.

  3. Gray and yellow are definitely a great combo. I want to see the rest of the kitchen! Is it all gray and yellow themed?

  4. Don't worry. I've lived in my plain kitchen for 2 years now. The fabric I bought for curtains is...well, I don't remember.

  5. That looks wonderful, I can't wait to see it next week. Can you put that IKEA fabric in the washer? The curtains will match the cupcakes! I love that.

  6. 1. These are fantastic.

    2. I heart Mumford. I mean I just love the album so much.
