 I know it wasn't hard to figure out what I was going to do with my bargain tab curtains but here goes anyway!

As I only had two panels and three windows, I decided to cut each panel in half.  Believe it or not, the length was just right and didn't require any hemming! 

 I think they finish the windows off nicely.  The only problem now, is after hanging the denim, I don't like the wall color!  The curtains almost make the walls look a little pinkish.  Hmmmm.....I may have a painting project in the near future!

Here are some pictures of the rest of the kitchen showing the red accents and horse and cowboy decor.  Enjoy!

 Note the bridle hanging off the curtain rod.  I managed to bring some of my horse tack from home to decorate with. 

A martingale.  
Can't wait till I can finagle a way to get my saddle out here too!

 Even the backdoor sports a red bandana as well as a red rug.

Yeah ok, so it's not your usual kitchen makeover, and it may even be a little 'tacky' (to you non horse lovers!), but it has been fun to do and dad likes it.  

SOOOOOO much better than chickens and apples!


  1. Karen,
    I agree with the better than chickens and apples! Now I'd love to see how you fit the saddle in! Go for it!

  2. Karen ~
    Looks great! I like the denim panels ~ a perfect compliment to the bandanas. What a great personal style. I can't believe someone would intentionally screw apples in to their cupboard doors. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
    So, what rug are you working on??? And don't tell me you haven't yet started :)
    Hugs :)

  3. I just noticed that there is one chicken left in the kitchen. It's on a mug next to the telephone and it holds pencils and pens!! Just can't get away from those darn chickens!!!

    And yes....I'm working on a rug!! Will post pics soon! What are YOU working on????

  4. Oh baby, ya crack me up. "Tacky"...ya sure shootin' can't be a City Slicker and get that one!!! This Ozark farm chick thinks your kitchen is great with the denim, bandannas and all your cool countrified accents. Do I see a saddle bar stool in your future??? Heeehehehe!

    God bless ya'll from the beautiful hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa!!!

  5. Thank you Nezzy!!! I figured 'tacky' would be lost on the City Slikers too, but any horse person would get it immediately! Thanks for reading my story and I have checked out your blog and am following it!


I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
