Tablecloth for Curtains

I have napkins pinned to my kitchen windows in lieu of curtains.

Yesterday I finally ordered a tablecloth from Saffron Marigold that I think will not only look good in the kitchen but will tie into the color scheme of the rest of the first floor.

I love this print from Saffron Marigold.

Saffron Marigold has dozens of gorgeous patterns — one more beautiful than the next — but the “Casablanca” model is light and airy.

The bumpout is approximately 110 inches wide with two small returns left and right.

I ordered the 108″ by 70″ cloth which I think will just fill the main space in the bump-out and allow me to use the border of the tablecloth as the border on the header.

This is the tablecloth border.

I still have to make decisions about how to hang the curtains and whether or not I should line them.

I need to work out the details for this area.

Can’t wait to see if it’s as perfect as I imagine it will be.

Do you take a chance on ordering items from photos? Do you have special criteria that helps make a successful purchase?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
