I have to say this makes me very happy! I hate window treatments. I never know what to do with my windows. If I had my way every window would be bare. I love that stark look from the inside. But I live with people that hate that! Plus our house is on street level and you can see straight into the house and see every bleeding thing inside it. NOT good!
I got the idea for using the tea towels while setting up for the baby shower a few weeks ago. I needed to hide the grossness that lurks behind my shed windows. It was just not pretty so I needed to cover it up easily. So I went into my stash of vintage tea towels, grabbed a tension rod and a few cloths pins. Genius!
