What's not to love about kitchen towels, right? My favorite places to shop for them are Crate&Barrel, HomeGoods, SurLaTable (on clearance) and good old Target. Target currently has flour sack towels for $3.99 and the prints are absolutely adorable. Since we changed the clocks, the sun has been shining right onto our kitchen table at dinner time. We don't need curtains on our kitchen windows for privacy, but we needed something to diffuse the light a bit. So my wheels started turning right in that aisle at Target when I spotted these vintage kitchen tools towels. I thought they would be the perfect curtains!
I didn't want to attach a permanent rod to these windows so I simply used a tension rod. Here is everything I needed for each window, all purchased at Target:
I planned on just folding the dish towel if the fabric was longer than my window, but as it turned out, the dish towels were the same length as the windows.
These curtains have added so much charm to our kitchen. I love the fun vintage print.
It was so easy to just hang the towels from the drapery clips. I used the same "faux pinch pleat" method I used on the tablecloth curtains.
And I have found yet another reason to be obsessed with kitchen towels :)
