Vintage Apron Curtains

Curtains are not really my "thing".  I don't have  knack for decorating AT ALL!  I don't like it, I don't dream about it or even try to make myself a better decorator.  So, to solve that problem, and make my house NOT look like a first time apartment.  I use the things that I have, and try to use them in creative ways.

Vintage Apron Curtains

I was lucky enough to be given several of my great-grandmother's aprons.  She died when I was young, but I do remember a little about her.  She always had an apron on, one that she made, and when I became an adult, ie responsible, my mom gave me several of her aprons.

In my old home, I had them displayed in a simple basket.  BUT...in our new home, I wanted to enjoy them more.  So, I used them as curtains in my new cookie/craft room.

When I first put these up, I hung a tension rod inside the window frame and tied the apron onto the rod....FAIL!  Well, I would not call it a total fail, it was just not the look I was going for.  So, I got out a hammer and nail, placed a nail into the window frame, tied a piece of twin between the two nails, and use some clothes pins to "hang" the apron.  Success!  I loved this look.

I have two windows in the room, so I chose bright and colorful aprons from my stash!  I still have several, but these were my favorites.

I topped one window with my Burlap Canvas Wall Art Puzzle Pieces, because..well, I am THE COOKIE PUZZLE..Duh!  I only made one set, and I am still deciding if I want to make another set, or do something else above the window.  I guess time will tell!

So...there you go...simple curtains or window treatment, that is totally free and holds great sentimental meaning.  If you are like me, and struggle with decorating, don't sweat it...just look around at what you love and what you have and make it work for you. It is YOUR home...do what you want, what you love, and your life will so much happier!
