Murphy’s Law states: “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.”

No matter. Nothing says I only have to work on the master for this series. Instead, we will be in the kitchen today.
Specifically, on this window.
It needed some dressing up. That window faces west and the setting sun will straight melt your face off if you glance out, as I am wont to do during dinner fixing time. The back deck off this area does have a roof (that isn’t quite finished yet, as you can sort of see) that helps, but when the sun reaches below the roof line, I’m blind.
I decided curtains for the lower portion of the window would be perfect, so I can skip the sunscreen, yet still have a view. Enter, the napkins Erin gave me! Plus some hanging rings and a bar.
I sent D in to Home Depot alone to get the bar and was a little concerned when he returned with white, but I think it worked out.
Fold the napkins into fourths, and attach each ring.
I wanted the pattern to vary, so I folded accordingly.
Then it was just a matter of setting up the rod to the right height, and installing!
See what I mean about the white rod working after all? The detail of the window is white, and I feel it allows the lighter colors of the napkins to come out and play, while blocking less of the view. Win, win, win.
These were a simple fix, no question.
I had never made curtains of any kind before, and when I was done, I felt much like I imagine the man who first made fire felt.
Now head on over to see all the progress with these girls who are actually kicking butt, and not just win-ning Charlie Sheen style.
