I've been experimenting with window treatments for my sliding glass doors in the kitchen. For the past two years I've used bamboo placemats arranged to look like a valance. This is the only photo I could find to show how that looked.
It was okay, but I wanted to add some more color to the room. I decided on red as an accent color to tie in with the adjoining family room. But everything I tried clashed with the rug under the kitchen table. No problem, I just got rid of the rug. This actually made the room look bigger and it's much easier to clean the bare floor than the rug.
I found this pretty fabric in my stash.
Then I pulled out this trim to go with it.
Lastly, I whipped out my handy-dandy Stitch Witchery. Perfect for any no-sew project.
This is how it turned out.
I'm quite happy with the results!
