"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

I Just Don't Wanna!!!!

Post, that is!

You see, I worked on a project today……& I need opinions.

But, I’m not sure I want them, know what I mean?

Ever feel that way???

The dining room curtains that came with the house:
(please ignore how terrible I look. uggg
I was going to post one of my better half standing in front of this window-
& he looked just as bad-but I decided to be nice!).
I have NEVER liked them (the curtains, that is-wink!).

I visit this blog upon occasion, & her window “mistreatments” (as she calls them),
were the inspiration for this quick & easy re-do.
What do you think?

You might want to chat up a friend of mine, who always takes up a home-improvement project during the summer when she and her husband are off from teaching.

This year, it's ripping up the 70s-era carpet from her dining room.

And she's doing it with four kids (almost 3 to 11) under foot.

I LOVE it!! I think they look great!! I also checked out the 'Nesting Place' blog and its really good with so many wonderful ideas.

Tina said...

Placemats! Very Cool!!! I used sheets once and shower curtains another time. I'm all for the creative. Looks pretty! See that was painless.

Joyce said...

I love the new look for the windows!!! Yes! No need to be scared. ;)

Wanna see mine? They are b.a.r.e.

Hannah said...

I think it looks really nice. MUCH better!


PS: we tried the Guatemalan black bean recipe that you gave me and although picky Sophia wouldn't try it the rest of my family inhaled them! Thanks!!

Kim & Dave said...

WAA HOOO! My hubby commented! (& his opinion matters the most, right?)

Kim & Dave said...

Thanks, everyone else for your kind comments. I was afraid they just screamed
"napkins/placemats." It's ok if you know that's what they are, you think?

& HANNAH-I'm so glad the beans were a hit! (except with your Guatemalteca.....kids!)

My mom has something similar on her kitchen window. Very tailored and streamlined.

Bonita said...

Very clever and it looks great!

P.S. As a person who adores black and white checks or gingham, I just have to ask what you did with the old curtains?

Kim & Dave said...

Bonita-the curtains are navy & white. It is so hard to see colors on the computer.

I have them washed, folded & waiting to decide what I should do with them! :-) Why? Did you want them?

Shane said...

Looks great!! I've used napkins as window treatments (mistreatments) forever. Super easy to put together and wash. Way to go.

Rachel said...
