VENSTERS: PERSPEKTIEF NA BUITE

Windows: perspective to the outside

KOFFIENOSTALGIE

Window view on coffee and coffee nostalgia

Get this look by putting up a wooden shelf above the once boring kitchen or informal dining room window. Use your granny’s doilies with different color beads and then show off your coffee pots (or tea pots). The different color beads will reflect the light coming through the window.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

VENSTERS: DIE SLEUTEL TOT UITSIG  

Windows: the key to a view

Create an interesting look to a very boring window and in the same time the possibility of wind chimes by stinging old keys for which you have no use. Use ribbon or any kind of rope in a style or color that suits the style of the room to string the cleaned keys in different lengths. Hang them on any standard window rod, in this case a copper rod that looks nice with the mostly copper keys.

This window is kept open by using silver serviette rings as curtain binders. These engraved rings with the name of the bride and groom, were used on the wedding table in the early 1960’s.

VENSTERS: MOENIE JOU BED OPMAAK NIE.

Windows: do not make your bed!

 

This was a new use for my precious crochet bedspread (or your tablecloth) I wanted to use and see this sentimental piece from my childhood memories. Consider using the crochet cloth as curtain. If the crochet cloth is large enough you can also use the excess cloth as part of the drape hanging to the ground or in this case to cover the toilet bowl. This makes sense in this bathroom with Victorian bath and Victorian metal ceiling.

VENSTERS: DIE GEUR VAN BADKAMERRUS  

Windows: scent of bathroom bliss

Create this look by putting up a standard plastic or wooden curtain rail with standard wooden curtain fittings from your local DIY store.

Then string your most beautiful empty perfume bottles (or ask your wealthy friends for their beautiful bottles or ask for the empty tester bottles at beauty stores.)

Now put in some fresh or dried flowers in each bottle and string in different lengths the bottles from the rod. If you wish you can also show off those impossible to walk on sexy shoes and the end of the rail.

Nowadays perfume bottles come in all different colors too!

Have fun!
