Cafe Curtains for Under $5.00

15 Minutes

Necessity is the mother invention, or so I have heard! Since we have brand new neighbours next door, and I am not sure what they think when they see me and my camera by this big bright window in my kitchen all the time!
Since I really did not know what I wanted to cover this window, the frugal in me decided to make my own. And, not spend too much.
Since I was going to Ikea anyway, I picked up 6 extra of my favorite dishtowels, and had my mom whip up 2 panels using 3 tea towels for each panel. Add to the top a one inch rod pocket and I had some rustic, casual cafe curtains!

    I love these curtains! The look is great. I have a yellow kitchen with red accessories, and these would look great! I love how they dress up the window but still let a lot of light in.
