Dressing your windows up with DROP CLOTH!

 A few months ago I jumped on the drop cloth bandwagon and made these curtains for the window in our sitting room. I LUV them! If I only knew how to sew I would be making other things with them! It's great how the drop cloths are finished around all the edges all you have to do is wash and iron and "VOILA" it's done!


                            I added a black rope trim to mine.







Now make sure you head on over to the Blog Party and join
 Kristin over @ http://www.myuncommonsliceofsuburbia.com/ and show us all your drop cloth projects! I can't wait to see them!!

I just bought a drop cloth to use for panels in my dining room! I have 2 small windows in there so I just cut one cloth in half to make 2 panels. I folded the raw edge over and sealed with some hot glue. Yours look beautiful with the trim!

These are so pretty, Martina! I have a ton of drop cloth that I made a few table runners with {using fabric tape}. I wish I could sew because I have enough to make a tent!!

These look fantastic! We don't seem to have fabric drop cloths here in SA, only plastic. I don't think it would be quite the same. :) Maybe you should start an export business LOL. x Sharon

Those are really gorgeous. I am always so skeptical when people talk about how easy they are. I am really going to have to get a drop cloth to see for myself! lol This REALLY looks great!

Frameless Shower Door have evolved like every other design feature in today's bathrooms.
If you're remodeling or building a full bath, chances are you will be tempted by this attractive design choice. Ordering a frameless shower door is a little bit like building an addition!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

These are incredible...I love the way you got them to fold so perfectly. Did you wash them first?

❀ JoAnne said...

Really nice Martna! You did an amazing job!! Love the addition of the trim!

Cindy said...

Your drapes look amazing!!! Because of the weight of them, they hang very straight. I love them, I am thinking of buying a couple and making slipcovers for my wing-back chairs. You didn't sew them at all? Fabulous!
Hugs, cindy
