DIY Kitchen Cafe Curtain with Grommets

 I'm in a sewing mood lately! I discovered that I am not that bad when it comes to sewing lol. I made fancy pillow cases for Jessica's room and  window treatments for both babies and foster boys room, but I'll post that next time :)
I also made a curtain for my kitchen window, just kind of exploring  a little bit and see what kind of style that fits in there. I want something that is not totally covered but gives a little privacy as well. I hardly find something that I like in the store, so why not try to do it on my own :). 

I found this fabric @ Mitchells Fabrics, it's on sale, it's $ 15 per meter but I got it half price $ 22 for 3 meters and  12 pieces grommets which is a little bit pricy. One grommet cost $2. So, a total of $44 dollars.  

I think it will look nice on my Sahara Brown granite countertop when it's done :)

This is my kitchen window looked like before. No more blinds for me.

I might try the roman shades as well, something like this:

How about you? what kind of window treatment you like the best in your kitchen?  

Have a great day!

That is a great idea what you did for your kitchen. Looks great :)

Those look fabulous! I love them...you are so clever and you didn't even know it.
I am thinking of making some kind of blind for my kitchen window that I made a European style treatment for, but I think I want to change it. My kitchen is Farmhouse/Cottage and this just doesn't suit it.
Glad you alerted me to your fabulous wt's! I couldn't find it, it didn't update itself on my side bar. Not sure why.
Hugs, Cynthia
