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?
You may recognize these from when we posted about the window treatments being for sale. In fact there were originally 2 sets. One sold but one is still available. Visit The Shop for details.
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!

Great, as always and I can’t wait to see the ceiling. How much fun!! Great job!
Hi there! Love your work and your blog! Wondering if you could share the source for the rod for the cafe curtain?
Thank you! Of course! The twisted metal curtain rods come from a local fencing company in Oklahoma City that also carry a great assortment of curtain hardware. Many of the twisted metal curtain rings, smooth rods and brackets are available at fabricresource.com.
Do you make and sell the valances? I love them!
Thank you, Laura! I do! You can read more about the process on the Services page which you will find listed above under the blog title. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thanks you for asking!
