Why didn't I think of that?

I can't leave well enough alone, with that said... I thought I had finished my window treatments in my kitchen nook area but...





Low and behold I was reading Centsational Girl and saw this in her kitchen...



And it got me thinking, that
1. I had the cornice board already
2. I had the fabric already            
3. I could do this right now           



Can't you tell I change things often! 

I didn't have any ribbon that matched my kitchen



So I cut some left over burlap into strips and frayed


The material was curtain panels that I had hanging here, but they looked to heavy for a breakfast nook


This is better, for now


I love people who blog!!!

This is darling. It is perfect in your little nook. Your whole seating area looks great, can I come and have a cup of coffee with you?

Where did you get your "I love coffee and comments" button. It is so perfect for me. I practically have an iv of coffee attached to me at all times!

Way too great. I was thinking of a redo on my breakfast nook, you have given me inspiration. I just used burlap to halfway recover an ottoman, watch for my post.
