Don’t you just love before and afters?
This time not only did I have the opportunity to take both before and after photos but I was also able to photograph Pam’s somewhere-between-minor-and-major-kitchen-renovation at the same time!
First we’re going to start with the window treatments. Do these windows looks familiar?
Pam loved the style of her previous window treatments so I took the basic idea and tweaked it a bit to accommodate the new fabrics.
We reused her existing lace sheers. The previous cafe curtains were plain without any additional detail. I used a aqua-turquoise silk velvet to create an 8″ cuff.
The valance was only altered slightly by choosing not to turn down a small contrasting cuff on each droop. I repeated the same contrasting band and trim detail like before.
We flipped the fabrics to create a cafe curtain for the sink window.
The orange dot, used here as the main curtain fabric, can be seen on the valance along the lower edge just under the tassel trim. The floral was used for the cuff, trimmed with a velvet ruffle and embellished with the same tassel trim as the valance.
I am so pleased with the way Pam’s new window treatments turned out!
