Burlap Curtains


If you are ever in the part of Kentucky that’s next to Tennessee…..and you find yourself next to the horse barn.

Turn right.

Then travel 4.5 miles past the corn and the soybeans and cows and the sheep and turn left.

At the end of that long winding country road, look for the house built in 1918.

You can’t miss it.

It’s a farmhouse.

With black shutters and a concrete paver patio without any grass.

And a dining room.

With smocked jute curtains.

The room that got me through it all.


Farmhouse Dining Room


You see….late at night when I was up to my elbows in tiny pieces of sandpaper that stuck to me like a salesman at a used car lot and the drywall decided it was holding its annual convention in my hair and the sudden realization that the tutorial showing the smiling lady calmly removing wallpaper with a steamer and a spray bottle of vinegar was nothing but a pipe dream….

…..this room was my sanctuary.

My inspiration.

Vintage Silverplate

I would just stand.

And stare wistfully.

And wonder if we were ever going to be through.

If the renovations would ever end.

If the farmhouse would ever be a home.

If I could take the AP test and get college credit for wallpaper removal.

And back when I was wistfully staring at the room….I didn’t know that one day I was going to write a blog.

And I didn’t know I would one day write about the renovations and the chandelier and the hutch and the fabric on the chairs and the paint color….

…..and the smoked jute curtains.

Those jute curtains.


Somehow everything on this blog comes back to those curtains.  :)

PS  These curtains came from Soft Surroundings.  Unfortunately they don’t make them anymore….but here are some other burlap curtain suggestions:
