Hide-the-Clutter Kitchen Curtains

Need to hide under-the-sink kitchen clutter? Use a valance curtain. Over the Thanksgiving holidays, I purchased two valance curtains for my kitchen. The curtains are red and tan plaid. I love red but have never had, or thought I would ever have, a red kitchen. However, red happens to be accumulating more and more in my little cottage cabin. I'm okay with it. In fact, it's becoming quite fun to plan and decorate. I hung one up on a tension rod under the sink. When my husband and I purchased our cottage cabin fixer upper, it also came with an old store counter that we use as cabinet space. So I hung the other valance curtain on a tension rod to cover the open side of the counter cabinet. I took a seam out of the valance to double the length, and the curtain fit just right.

The kitchen needs much work, but that will come later on our cottage cabin to-do list. For instance, the old tile in the kitchen has already been removed. Now we have a cement floor that we plant to paint or stain. Though we have much work ahead of us, it's fun fixing it up ourselves.

What beautiful fabric!! Do you live in your cabin/cottage or is it a get-away space?

Your curtains worked perfectly! Love them. I'm catching up on your blog and am loving all the inspiration. Even saw something that I was going to do. And here I was thinking I was original! lol
Have a great day!

I'm a big believer in curtains to hide things. It's very Euro. Yours are really cute!
