Liven Up A Not-So-Great Window View

The view out my kitchen window isn’t the greatest. And since it can become pretty easy to end up spending a decent amount of time at the kitchen sink, between cooking and cleaning… it’s nice to bring a little life to it!

Rather than traditional kitchen curtains, I put together this, see how to here

So cheap and easy! Still lets the light through, and the yellow creates such a friendly atmosphere.

An herb garden in funky tea or coffee tins or mugs makes for a pretty and useful arrangement as well. Side note: It’s always a good idea to have fresh basil growing on your window sill.  Even if you don’t have a green thumb, basil is pretty hardy and nothing can liven up a quinoa dish or homemade sauce like fresh picked basil. See my recipe for Green Pesto Dressing.

Another idea is to toss a wooden scrub brush in a glass milk bottle, some smiley daisies in a white pitcher, add a nice vintage tea pot to add a little more color, and spray paint a vintage picture frame so you can always look at your favorite people while washing dishes (as opposed to staring out at the stucco wall of your neighbor’s house).

Enjoy the view!
