This summer I've been having fun doing a napkin trick at my kitchen sink window. I bought a package of varicolored napkins at Target a while ago -- two napkins of each color. Every so often I change them out. I love the look of cafe curtain rings and cheery colors right where I do my daily kitchen chores.
I did the turquoise napkin trick first of all and then followed it up with yellow napkins (currently in the laundry), and now I'm sporting the 1970s orange look. One thing I do that makes the napkins look more "curtainy" is to press them into quarters. Then when they hang, they look crisp and neat and more like a curtain. I first saw the brilliant idea at Flower Patch Farmgirl here. I'm keeping an eye out for pretty napkins, and I'm thinking about making a few both to use and to hang at the window. Do you use cloth napkins at home? I especially like them, but paper napkins are sure handy, aren't they?
