Vintage Thingies Thursday--Curtain Call

I love love love old linens! I have quite a few old aprons, too, and most of them are all stashed away in a box in a closet. "What a dope!" I thought to myself when I finally had an idea on how to use AND display them! So they ended up as curtains! These are two I have over my kitchen sink.

  1. Treasures! Why box things up, when they can be enjoyed daily?

  5. What a great idea! They look so beautiful up there. What a shame to keep them tucked away where no one can see them. Really lovely!

  11. I have planned on doing this for years....and yet my aprons are stashed in a box. I'm going to do it soon. Did you keep the ties on?
