Sink Skirt

My kitchen is not the prettiest room in my house.

Check out that original 1963 laminate nastiness!
All of that will change one day, and then I swear you'll never get me out of it!

Speaking of which, I posted here last summer about some ideas and plans for our kitchen renovation. Then reality hit (again) and the project got put off again.

Some day!

In the meanwhile, why not make it a little prettier?

Ok, wow, that's not very pretty!
But that shows that we keep the trash under the kitchen sink, so that cupboard was always getting opened.
And one of the screws on one of the hinges was stripped.
And the door was wobbly. 
And I felt like sewing a ruffle.

(What?! I have three boys!)

I used a drop cloth to make a little curtain.
But it didn't like it.

So I added more ruffles!
And I love it! 

 This was super-easy and only required sewing in straight lines, no pinning or real measuring.
That's my kind of sewing!

Funny how this 'super-easy' project still managed to eat up a major portion of my day...

Do you ever that problem?


  1. Love the ruffles! I have projects do that , too. I know they should be super quick, but then half the day is gone and I've forgotten to take in process pics. ;-) Love your sink skirt. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm hosting my monthly Before Blogging Throwback Thursdays party, and would love for you to come show off something you bought, did, or created Before Blogging. Can't wait to see what you bring to the party.

  2. awesome! The extra ruffle is perfect!

  3. My kitchen isn't that pretty either. Who cares. As long as the other parts of the house are pretty I'm happy.
