Farmhouse DIY Dropcloth Curtains

Now that I am on a roll with hanging curtains, I figured I might as well polish off the rest of my great room, right? Window treatments really are the polishing touched to a space. They create so much depth and texture..it really just brings it all together.

I designed this room to only have fabric window treatments, just so it can compliment our wood burning stove and fireplace surround. So I decided to just do one panel per window. So it wouldn’t block out our views and also because these particular windows are not that wide (55″ wide I believe).

So the hunt began….first off ….i found these black curtain rods from Amazon

make sure to buy them longer than your window width…

and hanging rings to match.61lQlSSOSiL._SL1278_

 

Also…make sure they fit your rod! This rod is 1 inch in width…the rings i purchased stated they could fit rods up to 1 inch…match made in heaven!

Lastly I wanted some classic Dropcloth…My friends this is classic farmhouse decor, so if you want the look you can never go wrong with this stuff. I use it for EVERYTHING. It is sturdy and when washed it comes out nice and soft. I found this 9×12 one online that I only had to purchase one package for both of my panels. And it blends so well into my recent farmhouse style roman shades i installed.

These came in the mail FAST and the style and quality was exactly what I had had in mind.

I hung up my rods first…measure measure measure! There are some real good tutorials out there if you have never done this before. Super easy. Youtube it…or just watch this oneย i found.

Next I cut my drop cloth strait down the middle seam. It would be a perfect “half” of it now.

I washed them both at the same time in my washing machine on Heavy Duty…cold.

When I pulled them out of the washer there will be some frays…thats ok. Threw them into the dryer….

Next I ironed them with lots of steam..and than i simply hot glued the frayed edges. No skill involved guys…lol.

Lastly I folded the top part about 7″ and clipped the rings on. Voila….hung them up and……….DONE!

I really…reallllllly love them. My space now feels so much more complete and it has created such coziness in my home. Im in love! And best of all, they were a piece of cake to do!

Thanks for stopping by friends!

Happy creating!
