Before Blogging- Window Treatments

I know for about two weeks I have been promising to show you a project that I have been working on for a month of weekends and I had every intentions of posting it today.  However, I always love to participate in Before Blogging Throwback Thursdays blog party.  I will be posting this great project as my first post next week!

Here is a little project that I did in the kitchen years ago.  I created a simple shelf (of course with the help of my Dad).  The shelf is held up by “L brackets”.  If you look closely on at the end of shelves you will see the top of the bracket on the wall.  I painted the brackets the wall color and then hid them behind the merchandising. 

A large moulding is attached to the front of the shelf to hide the rod that holds the pendant window treatment that I made.




I always learn so much from looking at photographs of my own home…..  In person I didn’t realize all the crap decorative objects appear to be on the same height.  I will definitely have to  tweak this area.

Have a great weekend and I see everyone back here Sunday night for Amaze Me Monday blog party!



  1. Love the window treatment, and I love the way you hid the L brackets by flipping them up. It gives the whole shelf that floating look.
    I know what you mean about seeing things in pictures that you don't see in real life. Can't wait to see how you change it up.

  2. Your shelf is wonderful and I love the valance treatment. Such a great idea. Hugs, Marty

  3. Awesome shelves, Carrie! Fun to see that you and your Dad have been quite the design team for years! Love it! Have a fab weekend, friend. xo

  4. I hopped on over here from Chris's blog and saw yours on hers, so I decided to visit you. I read a bunch of your old have a lovely home! I will be back for more visits!!

  5. Carrie this turned out amazing!! I love it and the fabric looks similar to a Martha Stewart print I use to have.

  8. I love your before blogging window treatment and love how you went about looking at your own pics...umm! I love this idea, maybe something like this could look good in my kitchen windows, I haven't done anything yet! Thank you for hosting this lovely party, Carry and a terrific week. Hugs, FABBY

  9. They look lovely,The details at the bottom of the curtains are simple, yet they’re very appealing. It adds character to the entire window treatments.
