Fabric in a kitchen?

Yes, I know --- a real issue with grease, right? But I've been watching alot of Sarah's House of late and she seems to use fabric as a starting point for ALL her room's decor. So...

Here are some ways you can use fabric in the kitchen as part of a redecorating scheme:

  • Window treatments
  • Light or lamp shade covers
  • Seat cushion covers on bar stools or kitchen chairs
  • Door inserts in kitchen cabinets
  • Laminated fabric as shelf liners

Anyone have any other uses?

Thanks, Carol. I have bookmarked these for reading later on :-)

Edited to change that big big big mistake. Huge huge about that, Carol!! It's been a very long week away from home with early wake-ups and late bedtimes. Sigh. Clearly, my brain needs a nap right now...

Carol, tell me more about laminated fabrics for shelf liners.

I don't use fabric at all in the kitchen. There used to be a curtain, but I took that off since the kitchen window gave way to a little fish pond (now defunct.) I had inherited the curtains from the previous owners, and it was all frilly (and not me at all.)

Hmmm, other than curtains at my kitchen window there really is no fabric in my kitchen. Unless you count dish towels. ;)
