Hey friends! Today, I have a super easy cafe curtain tutorial for you! I apologize in advance for the lighting on these pics. Shooting a window is not the easiest for me. One of two home projects I will be sharing tutorials on. My husband and I have been redoing our kitchen for the last couple of months. It has been a long process, and we are 80% finished. I can’t wait to share our final reveal. In the meantime, I figured I could show you how I treated our ONE window that we have in our actual kitchen. We originally had blinds that were way too bulky in the window, but they just had to go. This DIY is super easy, makes such an impact and we are both in love with the way it looks. The best part is that it involves NO SEWING! Not even stitch witchery type “sewing”.
I simply purchased a cafe rod and curtain rings from Target ( maybe $10 total). I then went on a hunt for some great napkins or even tea towels of some sort. I wanted something with a pattern, but still neutral in the coloring. I found these lovelies on sale at Anthropologie. No need to look any further!
So, grab your supplies…..
Start with ironing your napkins first to ensure that they lay properly.
Place your clips (spaced how you would like) across your napkin. I used 4 clips on each napkin.
String them onto the cafe rod!
Hang your cafe rod ( about 3/4 of the way high for my window) until you get your desired look.
BTW, we are currently working on a concrete countertop for our island. Say a little prayer…. we are not professionals over here. YouTube and Pinterest have been our kitchen remodeling teachers. Big shout out to all of you who have
screwed this up and lived to tell us what NOT to do gone before us.
