Dishtowel Curtains

Dish towel curtains are all the rage around here! Actually the minute we moved in to the Alabama Farmhouse, I knew what I wanted to do at the kitchen window, make curtains from dishtowels! Along with collecting dishes, power tools and so much more, I have a big collection of cute dish towels.

This is my 10 Minute Decor Idea! Each month we get together and share an idea that you can recreate in just a few minutes!


Be sure to check out all the other ideas at the end of the post!

Simple kitchen curtains made with dish towels at Refresh Restyle

Honestly, this is only the second house of very many, that I’ve had a window in the kitchen.

After making all the changes in the kitchen, I decided to dig around in my dish towel drawer. The one where I store the pretty towels, ha, too pretty to use. Even though when I buy them I really plan on using them for the dishes and I try, I really do! But, I just keep using those worn in ones 😉

I’m glad I saved these!

You will need:

  • 1 – 2 packages of curtain rod rings
  • Tension Rod
  • Dish Towels – make sure they are long enough to cover

Usually, I just iron the dish towel and while I have it laying on the ironing board, I start on the edges attaching the rings. Add a ring to the center and space the others out accordingly. I used one package of 7 for each towel.

My farmhouse animal dish towels are from the Better Homes and Gardens collection at Walmart, they are out of stock. But I did find these Farm Animal ones. When I shop at TJ Maxx and all my other favorites, I do check the isles for dish towels.

How cute would it be to use vintage dish towels, I wish I had some!

I used a tension rod because I have brick around my window. If you have wood, you could use a traditional rod.
