I am working on a weekend project. I hadn't planned on it, but inspiration struck. A while ago, I took off the doors of the kitchen cabinet below the sink. I have a habit of taking off cupboard doors. I decided to put a rod across and hang burlap. But I changed my mind and instead of a rod, I screwed some conduit into the sides of the cabinets. I think the folks working at the hardware store thought I was a little odd. I also have a habit of being a little odd.
I ran into a problem with the burlap, however. I can't sew. So when I cut the burlap to fit, it frayed and needed to be hemmed. My family lived with this half hung burlap for months, but today it came down. (cue the applause)
I searched through some scraps of material that my grandma had that I kept after she passed away. Because, you see, one day I am going to learn how to sew. While looking through the material I found a crocheted table cloth. It had some holes in it and a couple of stains, but instead of throwing it away...I got out my scissors. I cut it to fit the cabinet opening and secured it with shower hooks. I possibly took these hooks from the shower curtain and my family possibly won't appreciate that when they shower tomorrow morning...but it was for the greater good!
I still have some work to do on it, but I love the mix of the conduit with the crochet. A little masculine mixed with some feminine makes me giddy. Here is a photo of the beginning stages.
