Retro Kitchen Valance

 I made some new curtains for my kitchen window.  I've had this inspiration picture (above) for a while now from Sew 4 Home, and I finally started looking for the same fabric.  The fabric is dwindling out there, but I found just the right amount for what I needed at The Quilted Castle

My kitchen window BEFORE.


I love the retro colors with the red.  It goes perfectly with my favorite bowl.

I also needed a new tablecloth for our 'new to us' Craigslist table.  Since it's square it's hard to find a square tablecloth, they're either rectangle or round.  Our table is 54" square, so I bought an aqua, 60" x 84" tablecloth from Target and cut and hemmed the longer end.  Tah-dah, more retro fun colors for my kitchen!
