DIY Window Treatment

Dare I say I almost like Pinterest better than Ravelry? I'm always poking around there looking for trends in knitwear and Fall 2015 designs.  And while I'm at it, I stumble on some other very cool things like this window pelmet box.  A 20 minute job and all you need is a foam core board, fabric, batting, duck tape and a stapler.  A regular old stapler.  I had this beautiful judipatuti fabric left over from a quilting project.  Turns out it was exactly the size I needed for my kitchen window.  I love how tailored this look is.  It's neat.  No frills, no gathers, no curtain rod.  It's just so pleasing and it's amazing what a difference it makes to soften up the kitchen.  So if you've got 20 minutes and the inclination, think about giving your window(s) a new outfit for Spring.


  1. Very nice! I see your tomato plants! :-D

  2. Thank you! Hah! You are so observant! How does your garden grow?

    1. Not so well this year...no water in East County :-( I'm going to do some pots though, definitely tomatoes, a jalapeno...gotta have salsa!

  3. Looks cute, Susan! I want to drink some wine in that kitchen! :)
