Inspiration photo (you might want to click on the photo to enlarge) I love this photo so much! My friend Cindy from Oakview Cottage sent it to me. She knew I loved lace and thought this might be the perfect curtain for my kitchen window. Cindy was so right! it's like she was inside my head (scary) LOL. Thank you Cindy so much for sending this photo to me, you are truly a sweetheart, who's opinion I admire.
So this is what I came up with. My curtains are semi home made, since I used pre-made curtains from Country Curtains. I ordered the white shear tie tops, I already had the lace curtains they were hanging in my front room at our previous home. They were also from Country Curtains.
I cut the lace curtains down and sewed them over the shear tie top curtains. The tie tops and the lace curtains were different widths, so I had to measure a lot and resew the sides also a lot of ironing. They were pretty simple to make. I think they look almost like the inspiration photo.
They are light and airy and have added just the right touch of lace to the kitchen that I love.
A fun sewing project and it didn't take to long. Gary had to raise the curtain rod for me and I puttied and repainted where the previous holes were (we worked as a team)Gary is a sweet pie and just grumbles a bit when I ask him to re-do something for me..He always says "how long are you going to leave these up..LOL"
I said forever! that is how much I love these curtains.
Today I'm linking up with Cielo for Show off your Cottage Monday.
