New shades in the kitchen…….

Okay, I have to admit…..I have had the shades up in

the kitchen for a few months now.

At first I did not like them but they sort of grew

on me after a while!

I really,really wanted the shades that Pottery Barn offers

but as you can imagine my windows are very

large and are a custom size.

So, I bought the shades and added the grosgrain ribbon myself.

I bought the ribbon on eBay

and attached it to the shades with fabric glue.

It was an easy process, just very time consuming.

I like that the shades don’t

block the light and offer privacy when needed.

Hope to see you there!

Your kitchen's so charming, Deserae, and I spotted my favorite rooster in the corner. I love her. You have much sunlight coming in through your kitchen window. It must be nice to look out your window every day and see what's going on with nature.

The new shades look great and I love the ribbon you chose. It's nice that they kind of filter the light too and don't totally block it. Very nice addition!

I like your new shade in your kitchen! It's pretty and subtle at the same time. I prefer subtle window treatments myself. Hmmmm......wonder why you need privacy? (LOL)

You did a beautiful job. Looks professionally done. I really love those tall windows. They're not something that I've seen very often. : )
