Vintage Tablecloth curtains

I finally decided what I wanted for my kitchen curtains.  I remembered that I had purchased a vintage tablecloth last year at the thrift store.  I got it out and discovered that it was the perfect color for our redecorated kitchen.  I cut two ends from the tablecloth, sewed them together and added a hem and top casing.  I love the finished curtains.  The color is perfect and the retro look is perfect.


There was a small piece from the middle of the tablecloth remaining after I made the curtains.  I made two small tea towels and put them ont the handle of the range.

Great repurpose! Instead of just a tablecloth, you now have curtains and teatowels. And when you know your colors and what you like, everything just seems to come together. :) Hope you are having a good day! We have dust -- the fine white stuff that hangs in the air. Do you get that kind over there? Total yuck! Best wishes to you, Tammy

Such a pretty combination and I love the red and aqua color, thanks for sharing, Maureen.
