I saw this curtain design tip on Honey and Fitz and it dawned on me... I must do this! I had been planning a curtain makeover for awhile, and with this inspiration, I set out to revamp my living room and dining room window treatments.
Living Room Before
I'm almost embarrassed to show this picture. Ugh. I cringe on my curtain placement. I first purchased these curtains three years ago when I moved in and didn't really have a clear sense of what I wanted.
Living Room After
For my curtain makeover, I purchased a 12 x 15 ft. drop cloth from Home Depot. I used a seam ripper to separate the panels and then had my mom sew a cuff on the bottom (to weigh the panels down) as well as the side seams. I also purchased curtain ring clips from ebay for $5 a set. I used the same rods from before.
Dining Room Before
As you may remember, my dining room looked like this. (Sorry I don't have a full picture of the curtains. This was the best I could find.)
Dining Room After
My living room and dining area are essentially one big space, so I wanted to use the same window treatments here.
Have you used drop cloths for other projects? They seem so versatile.
