My sister is currently renovating her kitchen. Although she still has a few things to tackle, she is hosting our book club meet this week so as a temporary solution to the hole underneath the sink, she asked me to sew her a curtain. She replaced her sink with a farmhouse sink so in doing so, the doors no longer fit.
Instead of leaving an empty space for all to see her garbage disposal, I made her something to cover it up. Since her cabinets are white, I decided that a big graphic print like this black and white damask would be perfect. To tie in the teal curtains she has in the living room and kitchen walls, I added a little trim.
Even though this curtain would be under the sink, I did not want to show any seams or stitching. First I sewed the trim onto the fabric. Then I folded the top of the fabric down to cover the seam and I pressed in place.
I made a simple pocket hole on the top so the curtain rod could be inserted through and I sewed a 3 inch bottom hem with a blind stitch so no thread would be seen.
Here's the lovely hole under the sink. Its a little site for sore eyes, isn't it?
Right underneath is a tension rod to hold up the curtain.
I slipped the curtain in and voila, no more hole.
I think it is adorable. I love the detail and the extra layer with trim.
The kitchen is now ready for our little get together.
More details on her kitchen still to come :)
