fabric window diy

No Comments »

Here is part of my kitchen. There is a little window with some neat glass in it. What is outside of the window? A staircase. A loud, echoey staircase that myself and two other neighbors use. They can't really see me through it, but I still feel like I don't have much privacy in my kitchen, you know? So I thought I would work at covering it up.

Here you can see this window in relation to part of my kitchen. (And no, it's not my choice to have those farm decals be up on the wall! I just can't reach them to take them down.)
Here is what you need:

  1. Fabric of your choice
  2. Cardboard
  3. Fabric glue
  4. Fabric scissors (not pictured)
  5. Box cutter
Be sure to measure the area of the window that you wish to fill with the cardboard. Then measure again to make sure. Next, cut it out with the box cutter. Once you've reached that stage...

Yes, have your dog lay on everything before you cut out the fabric. Once she moves and you're able to cut the fabric to fit the cardboard (with a little overlap so the fabric doesn't uncurl), use the fabric glue to glue the fabric to the cardboard. I assume you could use other glue as well, but this is the one that I used.
And…wa-lah! Fabric privacy window! Push that baby into your window and you're good to go!

What projects have you been up to this week?

new items up on eBay

Hi Folks! Just letting you all know that I listed a few more items on eBay today. You can check out what I am selling here. I am mostly selling clothes as I thin my closet but I do have some home goods up there right now too.

This was my view out of my bedroom this morning. Although it was hell driving home yesterday, it all looked so pretty in the morning light. As the day wore on, clouds rolled in and thrummed down more snow, sleet and rain. This pretty view is now gone and mired by dirty sand.

Sigh. I cannot wait for this winter weather to be over. Not that I welcome humid 90 degree days either, but this darkness and drudgery wears on a person.

Oh, hello

It's been awhile. I discovered this past week that my lens no longer works on my camera and apparently this has jammed my creative ability to write posts. My new lens is on its way and should be here next week. In the meantime, you will have to enjoy a few cell phone Instagram posts in the meantime. 

I can't wait to do a full post on this gem! The top is covered in chalkboard paint and I spray painted the bottoms of the legs in Looking Glass by Krylon. Just a few more things left to do and the. I will do the full review. 

Is anyone else excited that daffodils are in the stores? They're just so cheery in my opinion...I just had to show off my newest embroidery hoop with them. The fabric is a remnant from Maramiki's shop on Etsy and then I embroidered the word love on it. I love the texture of the piece. 

Speaking of love, Happy Valentine's Day to those who celebrate it. To those who don't, bah humbug. I encourage everyone to show each other love every day of the year, not just on this random day that was picked. 

A couple of my lady friends and I are getting together tomorrow afternoon for crafty time. I look forward to showing you what we work on. My friend has a new kitty named Ruby and a vintage sewing machine to setup. 

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

Niagara Falls

Earlier last month, we went to Niagara Falls. It was the first time either of us had been there and it was beautiful. Icy and cold, but beautiful. Tater enjoyed herself as well. Good thing we brought sweaters for her to wear--she needed them!
