Curtains versus Sheets

The kitchen eating area needed something......

I thought the answer was curtains. 

If only I could visualize things before I execute them...
For example, I thought these Ikea curtains would look cute in the kitchen.  Epic fail.  They looked like sheets.  And the pattern was a bit much.  And the curtains were white and the rug was cream.  And Nate hung them too low....and they kept getting stuck in the door.  And... :P

After learning a little bit more about hanging curtains, I decided on these curtains from Target.  And I made Nate rehang the curtain rods. It's amazing we are still married....I wasn't so sure after this adventure.

What do you think?  I wasn't sure what to do above the patio doors. 

We were super annoyed when the curtains kept getting caught in the door (we use the deck A LOT in the summer).  We didn't need the curtains for privacy...just we did away with the one getting stuck in the door...which left that area feeling like it was missing something. 

We decided on an iron piece from Hobby Lobby to add a little interest. 
Too much? Other suggestions??


  1. You are a huge need and I love it. Love the iron thing too. I vote to keep it. I think the kitchen looks good.

  2. I'm glad you followed the rules! Now get back into blogging so I know what you are up to! I've heard there are these things called telephones...but mine only lets me play angry birds and check facebook! :P

  3. Hahaha, I have had that same problem! I'm glad I'm not the only one that has a phone that only lets them play angry birds. I'll see what I can do about the blogging.
