Quick + Simple Decorating Hack

Updated: Oct 20, 2020

Over the last few weeks, I've been putting every ounce of patience and strength into renovating our kitchen. Even though it hasn't been a full-blown reno that's involved taking down walls or removing cabinets, it's still been quite the undertaking, and I'm so happy it's almost complete.

Because I still have a few final touches to add, I'm not quite ready to reveal everything I've done. However, I did want to share a quick and easy decorating hack I used to save us a bit of money.



  • Cloth napkins

  • Curtain rings

  • Tension rod

Depending on where you live, you might be able to get all of these things at a dollar store. Personally, I wasn't able to find the specific colours and styles I was looking for at one, but I still managed to snag my ideal materials for reasonable prices at stores like HomeSense and Walmart.

To get this hack started, all I did was quickly iron out the creases and wrinkles from four of the cloth napkins I purchased. I then attached a few clip-on curtain rings along the top of each one.

Next, I slid the rings onto my tension rod and secured it in place between the cupboards that bookend the window over our kitchen sink.

Without much fuss, I wound up with a practical and pretty set of café curtains. Just like that!

In the future, I'd love to have a set of timeless bamboo blinds in this part of the kitchen. But for now, I'm more than happy with the way these look.

I hope to have the final reveal of the entire kitchen published soon. Until then, give this handy decorating hack a try in your own home!
