Cheap Drop Cloth Curtains II

Last year I posted here about the phenomenon that is cheap drapery made of canvas drop cloth. I owe you a picture of the finished product. I did not go with any sewing. Instead, we used drapery clips. It worked great and it was so easy. I have yet to dye them or do anything else with them as I had originally planned.

The only two negatives were the fact that I bought the three drop cloths on the right years before the two on the left. So, the ones on the left have a seam going through middle, as you can see. Also, even though they were all washed, the ones on the left did not shrink up as much, so they are quite a bit longer. But hey, it works for my purposes, and it makes the room much cozier than having huge naked windows. 

I'm happy!


  1. Excellent information! I've been needing drapes in one room for so long and HATE sewing. I now think I'll do several rooms!

    So being useless and avoiding fabric stores I'm assuming you bought this in a hardware store?

  2. Yep! Bought them all at Lowe's for around $9 and change for each drop cloth. They are each about 6' x 9' I believe. Good luck!

    1. They look so great in your shot. Thanks for the great idea. Cheap and easy. My two favorite food groups.


I love to hear from you. If I have comment moderation on it may take a while for your comment to appear. =)
