Dish Towel to Cafe Curtain

Share this post

Oh target you did it again.  There I was just shopping for essentials when I saw a dish towel (2 to be precise) that would look great in my kitchen.

As I was eyeing them up it occurred to me this might be a better option than trying to find the perfect fabric for a much-needed curtain in my bathroom.  I had found the perfect fabric for this project a few days ago but it was going for about $20 a yard…no thank you.

You see our first floor half bath has a little window with a great view of the river behind us.  This winter a house went up behind us.  So now there is the potential that my new neighbors might see us doing our business.  Realistically they probably cannot see anything but I’d rather be safe than sorry.

This window is also partially visible from our deck.  Again, probably not a big deal but I like to use the bathroom in private.

So, back at Target.  I decided that this 2 pack of dish towels will serve as both a curtain and a cute kitchen accessory.  Then it was off to the curtain aisle for a tension rod and clips.

I ironed the towel and cut off the tag.  That was it, it was the perfect size.  It also looks cute when you come in the back door.  The pocket door to the bathroom is usually open so why not have something nice to look at.

How cute and easy is that.  No-sew, no glue, no work really.  I think I am going to keep an eye out for yellow towels so that I can switch these out now and then.  How fun!

Have you gotten creative with window treatments?  What have you used?

Thanks for visiting!

Any thoughts on what to do for a valance? Cut and hem another dish towel? Or cut and use fabric glue?

I do not sew so I would cut and use fabric glue to hem it. I just iron a hem then add a little fabric glue. Good luck a valance would look cute.

Such a cute idea! They always have better patterns in dish towels than they do curtains. I will be trying this in my kitchen. Thanks for sharing ;)

Isn't Target just fabulous? Half of the curtains in my house have come from the kitchen/table linens section of Target!
