Christmas early at the Hewitts! (atleast for me!)

My friend Kristy forwarded me a blog website where the woman shows her readers how to make crafty items they can't really afford, like drapery and home decor she likes from the pricey Pottery Barn store. I fell in love with her drapes she made from drop-cloths! Yes, you heard me....the canvas-like fabric you throw on the floor when you paint to protect your carpet! Believe it or not, the pieces are already hemmed on all four sides, are very thick, and actually have a nice little texture going on. She walks you through the steps on how to make the "drop-cloth curtains" and shows a picture of each step and how her's turned out in the end. I jumped on this project immediately since I recently ripped down my old kitchen curtains after my Dad's visit last month. His new handywork in my den made my curtains in the kitchen look dingy and out-of-date! Plus, Christmas came early this year for little ole me, and my momma (who still loves to spoil me) bought Tim and I a new family kitchen table. It is beautiful and together with my new drapes, completes my kitchen.....FINALLY! Check out my pictures below...









This is the blog below....but don't be surprised if some of you get little gifts from there this year.....

That looks great! Next trip up Tim and I will do Maple Valences to match your cabs - the table is beautiful.

What a nice Christmas gift. It looks great! Our kitchen is near completion. As I write this my husband is putting down the floor molding. We still have to order the counter tops which will be sometime this week (hopefully). I will be sure to post about it! Thanks for following.
