Kitchen remodels, as many of you know, can be a daunting project. This remodel, which wasn’t like starting from the studs but consisted of more than just paint, was overwhelming at times and took several months from start to finish.
For the past several years this little chest has resided in my entry hall. I honestly can’t even remember how long I’ve had it. I’m trying to picture it in my previous home…but I can’t…so I guess that means less than 10 years since that’s how long we’ve lived in this home. Almost.
EDIT: MY sweet sis-in-law reminded me that is was at my previous house so I’ve had it longer than 10 years! LOL! And of course, once she reminded me where it was I remembered!
My memory is so crazy these days. I remember the most random of inconsequential things but can’t seem to recall important details. But that’s a post for another day. If I remember.
My brother Matt built this chest for me. I sent him a drawing plus dimensions, he built it and I painted it. Let’s say 9 years ago.

I was so tickled. I realize my creations are not eternal. They’re perfect for a time and place but always subject to the next decorating whim. And that’s okay! But it was SO NICE to see these particular curtains being used again. Being loved for the second time.
Today, you have the opportunity to purchase, at a great price compared to brand new customwindow treatments, a pair of gently used curtain panels…this is your post!
This sweet little cafe curtain is a style that works in just about every room in the house. Here it’s shown above a kitchen sink but I’ve used this curtain, or variations of it, in entry halls, bathrooms, bedrooms, offices, living rooms and dining rooms.
Today I’m sharing a tutorial for this simple curtain, made from one piece of fabric. Technically, I suppose it’s one piece of fabric per panel.
Besides your fabric, all you need is a little bit of math, an iron and a straight stitch.
In July, my three girls and I went on a road trip. It was a combination working vacation (for Kaleigh) and a visiting family road trip that took us from Oklahoma to Florida to North Carolina & Virginia and back to home to Oklahoma.
