Love Your Space Challenge #15
Treat Your Kitchen Window
Option 1: Use something unusual. Instead of curtains, use pretty items that let light through. Here is a beautiful display of bottles and antique kitchen towels.
I love the shelf that was added to this kitchen window, but of course the stunning antique window display is the focal point.
Create your own valance with a painted sign.
Option 2: Go ahead and hang curtains but try a trendy fabric and modern hardware to give it a fresh appeal.
My Outcome: Something unusual, of course! I just love using items I already have and this window display showcases my favorite post cards and pictures. (picture wire wrapped around two little nails + miniature clothes pins= super easy project)
Do you have window treatments that need updating? A bare window sill that could use a little love? Are you up for the challenge?
I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts! Leave me a comment, let’s chat.
This is the type of challenge I like. I really love that it’s stretched out, much easier to actually accomplish. I love those yellow bottles.
Thanks for the sweet comment Tiffany! I LOVE those yellow bottles too.
Beautiful photos and so creative.
Thank you Aleshea! I like doing things a little out of the box. 😉
That is very cute. I really like the idea of using the post cards and photos. Wish I had a kitchen window. We moved last month and no window 🙁
Oh, that is a little sad… I had them hanging in our family room framed with curtain panels in our old house. Thanks for stopping by Dawn!
Kathy, I love these! My favorites are the bottles and dresser scarves, the antique window-in-a-window, and the post cards and pictures! ♥ You’ve really got my wheels turning- thanks for the ideas!
Thanks Joy! Those are my favorites too. I had an old painted window on our kitchen sill of our previous house.
