And on to the new idea! You'll notice that in this picture of my kitchen, you can see there is a window with no curtains.

I've been debating for a while on what I should do with the window. At first I thought I would buy a curtain to match the kitchen color scheme. I even had my dad hang the curtain rod when I moved in, just in case I wanted to get a curtain. It's been well over a year since he did that and still no curtain. As these things normally go, an idea struck me as I was browsing various DIY and design websites: create a hanging window garden using rods and attachable hanging pots!

Here's some of the equipment that can make this happen, all part of the Fintorp series at Ikea.
I'm planning an Ikea trip this weekend, so I could possibly have this done in a week's time! My one concern is that the bars won't be long enough to stretch across my window. I'll have to take measurements. But even if they don't work, I like this idea enough that I'll find a way to make it work! Wish me luck!
