I started with a cool hanger and a vintage napkin.
The hanger had a number on the center clip. Im thinking dry cleaner? Or maybe not. It doesnt really matter, but I always like to throw out a guess when I dont know.
The three little clips made this hanger ideal for a window covering.
I love monogramming on vintage napkins. The B stands for Bootsie... her nickname from when she was a wee little one.
I made pleats in the napkin and simply clipped it to the hanger.
I used a little starch and pressed in the pleats.
Ok...that part of the puzzle is done!
Then I had to figure out how to hang it. Back to my junk stash! I found just the right stuff, but had to drill a hole first.
This little glass rosette and vintage hook did the trick!
The top of the hanger fits the....

Window covered successfully. Sorry the image is a little shadowy...but its hard to shoot directly in to the sun. I think you get the idea!

A window in my daughter's dressing room needed a covering....but just a little.  My home is in the woods so sometimes a little privacy is all you need. This solution provides just that and still let's the natural light in. The sweetness of the vintage napkin plays nicely with the industrial hanger. Her room is a cottage industrial style so this little covering is right at home!

Did you make this?

I have twelve hangers and numerous napkins. I couldn't just buy one!

Be Well,
