Sewing Burlap and Lace Curtains

 Hi there, welcome back!
I spent a good part of yesterday fiddling in the kitchen.
And after about three months... 
finally fixed my burlap curtains!
 I have a small kitchen window over the sink and a patio door in the kitchen.  I wanted to use my inspiration fabric... a sweet rose print for the new re-do coming soon.

 I hung some vintage looking keys on clips for fun!
 I like to use flat panels on spring rods so you can really see my fabrics.
 Burlap + Lace = Fun!
 Remember my Ebay panels that were two different sizes 
and about 6 inches too short!  They look so much better now.
 I had this lace panel and I cut the top and the bottom off of it for the scalloped edges.
 I had to hem them while hanging... the burlap was that crooked.... but it turned out fine.
 99% of the time they will be open, but I like the option of some privacy.
 Sweet and simple.
I hope to start the wallpaper and paint next week!
The new colors are much softer and lighter.
The pumpkin will be replaced by a very light blue.
I can't wait to share it with you guys!


PS--- I will share my holiday decor tomorrow.. come back then!
