new kitchen curtains

Last week, I finally got started on a project I’d been thinking about since we moved in over 2 months ago—I sewed my first curtains!

There are a lot of windows in this house, which I love. Most of the window treatments left in the house were not worth keeping, so we threw them out before we moved in. However, with the kitchen, I didn’t want to toss the curtains before I had replacements ready. They weren’t terribly ugly. but they were old, dirty, and just not my taste.

On the right, you can kind of see that there was some blue and pink in them.

They were see-through, so they let in a lot of light, but you couldn’t open them to see anything clearly out the window. In addition to that, our neighbors could see right in once it got dark outside.

I bought four yards of gray and white chevron fabric from JoAnn’s for $15 (with a 40% off coupon). Once I figured out how to sew the first one, the other five came together pretty quickly.

I absolutely love how they turned out—I think they’re the perfect modern addition to the kitchen! 

And we’re extremely happy to have privacy in our kitchen now, especially when it’s getting dark earlier :)


  1. I love your choice of fabric - so cute! They are a great addition to the kitchen, for sure :) and very impressive that you sewed them yourself - I wish I knew how to sew!

  2. Gorgeous! Love the chevron! I am on a chevron kick lately- Love the new look!

  3. They completely updated the look and made it so fresh! I love this gray and white chevron print.

  4. Your curtains looks great!! I recently made new curtains for my kitchen window, too, although I cheated and did no-sew curtains. :)

  5. Love the new curtains! You did such a great job!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
