Easy No-Sew Drop Cloth Curtains
Recently I have been trying to find ways to make our living room look brighter and more inviting, which is a challenge with our wood paneling. The obvious answer would be to open the blinds and pull back the curtains but we live on a somewhat busy street and I enjoy my privacy. While looking at a home tour on either Design*Sponge or Apartment Therapy (sorry I can’t remember which one) I noticed that someone mentioned their curtain was actually a drop cloth. So I measured my windows and off to Lowe’s I went on a mission. I bought (2) 6′ x 9′ Canvas Drop Cloths and 2 sets of Allen + Roth Clip Rings.
That afternoon my friend Nikki and I installed my curtain rod about 6 inches higher than the window to make the window seem larger and the room seem bigger. Next we added the clip rings (7 per drop cloth) to evenly spaced folds in the drop cloth to create pleats. Once that was completed we hung the drop cloths on the curtain rod and we were done!
I am so happy with the results. Our drop cloth curtains brighten our living room tremendously and they were so easy and inexpensive to make!

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
