…And it finally happened!

My house is a disaster, my kids have eaten a lot of Macaroni & Cheese, my hands have been covered in paint for the last three weeks BUT guess what?

Hakuna Matata baby…  because Kitchen week is finally  here!


Can you believe it?

Our kitchen has gone through such a big transformation so I decided to bring it to you in pieces…


I know… there is too much to show in just one post. I’m sorry…




I have really spent many hours trying to find the right fabric for my kitchen valance and in my search for simplicity I could not find the one.

So I ended up sewing three plain white canvas valances.

One for each window with the intention to stencil them.

Right before I was ready to do so my eyes caught the washi tape that I had purchased earlier that day at Target.

Washi Tape?

Yes my dears… I said Washi Tape.


So, I thought wait a minute little monkey!

1. Washi tape is HEAT resistant. 

2. I don’t know you but I don’t wash my valances every month…

3. By the end of the Season I can give them a wash exchange the washi tape and even give the valance a brand new look if I want to.

So I made a Washi Tape Window Treatment.

Check them OUT!



This is the easiest thing I have ever done!

Just place the tape making the design you like and lightly iron the tape to the fabric to make a stronger bond.



Say it with me…




I would never use Washi Tape on a regular curtain that it is used all the time.

I don’t think it is strong enough for a project like that.

For a window treatment that you don’t touch at all, as a valance,  I think it is a great idea.


So there you have it!

    I need these for my kitchen! I’m a complete novice when it comes to sewing so did you just sew a spot for the regular curtain rod to make these?

  3. These window treatments are AMAZING!! I just wanted to let you know that we are featuring this tomorrow in a roundup of washi tape ideas on our blog: http://mysisterssuitcase.blogspot.com.
