I am still working on redecorating my bedroom and today I tackled the curtains. If I had known how easy it was to make curtains from drop cloths, I would have gotten these done a lot sooner!
Did you know that drop cloths come already hemmed? I didn't! Imagine my surprise when I opened the packages and found that out! Add that to the super cheap price of these babies and I couldn't have been happier. This is all I had to do to have these lovelies.
I bought them at Lowes for about 15 bucks per panel. They were 9 feet by 6 feet. Next I washed them. Then I turned one short end under 6 inches and pressed. I sewed a curtain pocket at 3 inches and 6 inches from the folded edge, ironed out the wrinkles and hung them on the old curtain rods. Times the 10 minutes per panel and in 30 minutes I had 3 panels sewn and hung. Yippee! My vintage bedroom is one step closer to being done. If you want to see other projects look here and here. Diana
