I wanted to share an easy project that I did over the weekend. I've been wanting to do this for a very long time, and finally got around to it. I love how it turned out.
First, I must share the "before" picture.
Now, here is the "after" picture!
Do you like it?! It was very easy to do. I had all of the materials on hand, so it didn't cost me a dime. I love when I can say that! Ha!
I just took a drop cloth and cut it to the measurements of my cabinet opening (double the width for gathering) and then hemmed that. Then I hemmed an opening at the top for the spring rod. I ironed it and after removing the cabinet doors, I simply hung it up! Easy Peasy!!
Here is a close-up.
Most of the time, I see these done under apron front sinks. I originally wanted one of those when we had our granite counters installed, but later learned that it required our cabinetry to be altered. So, I decided against it. However, having this skirt under my sink is the next best thing!
I like how it softens the hard lines of the cabinets. My husband even likes it! I didn't expect that from him, but when he said it looked old-fashioned, I knew I had hit the mark! Score!
To see where I got all of my inspiration for this, you can go check out these blogs and look at their sink skirts. I think mine is a pretty close match. If you don't already visit these blogs, get ready to stay there awhile. There is soooo much eye candy!
Thanks for stopping by!
