As we were tweaking our plans before we broke ground, I
firmly insisted sweetly requested that we have a window in the kitchen.
Did it matter that we’ve got a glass door right off the kitchen? Or giant windows in the dining area? Or the fact we’d have less cabinet space?
I got my window, and I’m so glad. I love it. It allows me to gaze out over the back yard while slaving away in the kitchen.
…..You know me better than that.
It allows me to gaze out over the back yard while standing there gazing out over the back yard, is what it does.
It only comes with one teeny-tiny problem. The back of the house faces west, so while we get to enjoy some spectacular sunsets.. we’re also talking Kansas sunsets, and it gets hotter’n donut grease. Hence my sweet newspaper curtain.
I’m not a big fan of blinds, so it’s handy that we don’t have any neighbors back there. The roof getting installed on the back deck has really helped with the blinding death rays of the fading sun, but I still feel like it needs a little something.
But I’m really at a loss. I see all you guys hand sewing your very own cafe curtains in pretty fabrics, while all I’d managed to do was hang newspaper in it with painters tape.
I found a couple things that I think would work ok.
But I can’t say either are really blowing my mind.
Help a sister out!
