Cozy Cabin Kitchen Sink

I decided to do something non-architectural and mix things up a little.  I spent some time working on a skirt for the kitchen sink in my cabin.  I toyed with the idea of gathering the material all around the sink, but it got kind of bulky and this kitchen is so small,so I ended up with flat panels.

My initial thought was to use red gingham fabric because it goes very well with the floor.  But then I found this black ribbon that I liked and I was already planning on using the red gingham fabric in the living room anyway.  Or should I use leather in the living room?  (These photos looked a lot lighter last night when I took them)

I lined the back side of the skirt with the red and you see it peeking through.  I thought up the small peek-a-boo slot. I want to find a little button to attach- any ideas? I envisioned being able to see something under the sink, maybe a basket, or bottles, or a mouse? I am thinking of using the same black and white gingham fabric for the window treatment in the kitchen - probably a valance and some cafe type curtains?  Your input would be much appreciated.
