I've been wanting to make an awning for my kitchen but was a bit intimated by the sewing that it would require. If you remember, I'm a bit of a newbie at sewing. But I got it done and am thrilled with the results. SOOOO, check out my latest sewing/DIY/home decor project.
The valences before were not awful...just not awesome. Sometimes I don't even know I need a change until the change takes place and I wonder why I didn't do it sooner!!
The window before was just kinda bland and needed something to tie the two sets of cabinets together. I'm so glad the awning fixed both of those issues.
It was really easy to make too. All I did was cut my material to size and then hemmed three sides. At the top of the material, I made the curtain rod opening. The size of this will depend on the size of your curtain rod.
I wanted a little fancy at the bottom of the awning,
so I sewed on this decorative braid.
To hang the awning , all you need is two suspension rods. Feed the awning through the opening you created at the top of the material.
I love it! What a big difference something so simple can make.
