Dish Towel Curtains

I am so excited...

My dining room table was picked for the top ten over at the DIY Club January contest.

Go check it out and all of the other amazing projects in the top 10. :)

My sister over at Mason Bay also had a project in the top 10,

check out her project here.

Today I wanted to share with you the curtains I have on my little window above the kitchen sink.


Can you guess what I used for these?

(If you can't you are either slow or didn't read the title for this post :))

Yep, I used dish towels for the curtains.


I was inspired by these "Elly" towels after I found them at Ikea for $2.50 for the set.

(Have I ever mentioned that I love Ikea???)


To hang them up I used another Ikea purchase, the "Deka" curtain system

It was soooo easy to install and then I just clipped the towels up using the little clips.


The husband isn't so sure about these, but I love them.

What do you guys think?

Is it a keeper or not??

On the same trip my sister purchased the same set of dish towels.

She used on of them to make a pillow cover.


Check out her post about the pillow here.

Hmm...this makes me think we should have a challenge about what everyone can come up

with using the same dish towels.

Would anyone be interested in participating if we did that?

God Bless!
Jenna

I think it's a darling idea. I used a tablecloth and cut and sewed for my kitchen curtain because I couldn't find fabric I wanted. The tablecloth was perfect. I also had enough to make a runner for my buffet and cover the shades on my chandelier!

i think it is a cute idea and it would be really easy to change out and customize for events and seasons! love it!

Jenna, I love your blog! I have been debating lately about starting a new blog solely about my house/design, and you have inspired me to do so.

I love how you can rearrange the different patterns and then presto, a new(ish) look! I think the challenge idea would be super fun! Did the towels come in different colors?

I think we should do a Ikea challenge. It can be anything from there. How much fun would that be


I also love the curtains.

I think I know why your husband doesn't like it. And we may be on the same page. But, I think it's a refreshing idea! I'll ask my wife about it -- she's finding some really better designs for our home. We're doing a renovation and we already started on the roofing. The contractors from Omaha are assisting us in everything. Anyway, I saw your work DIY Club. It's very nice. Did you do it yourself?

Very good website you have here but I was
curious about if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics discussed

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I find this
topic to be really something that I feel I would by no means understand.
It seems too complicated and very vast for me. I'm taking a look forward on your next submit, I'll try to get the hang of it!
