Need to update your curtains? These ruffled drop cloth curtains are adorable and simple to make and they add great texture and beauty to a neutral room.
I can’t decide.
I can’t decide if I should make five more of these ruffled drop cloth curtains or stop while I’m ahead.
They are so good light/bad light.
One minute…..I’m looking at them and I am so all about them. I want to marry them and invite the entire country over for sweet tea….just so I can work my ruffled drop cloth curtains into conversation.
And then I leave the room.
And when I return and take a second look…..all I can think is…..“bless their little drop cloth heart.”
I saw them over on the Anthropologie website.
And I loved them.
They were so grand and full and ruffly and wonderful.
But $208 a panel?
So wonderful. But so out of my budget. But then I thought of drop cloth. I mean….can’t you make everything and anything out of a drop cloth?
And Anthro curtains should be no exception.
So I made them from 6 x 9 drop-cloths that were only $10.96 at Lowe’s.
I just sewed a ruffle down the center and hung them from the curtain rods.
And when I saw them, my heart smiled.
I was so all about them.
They were ruffly and kind of looked like linen if you squinted and poufy in all the right places and the perfect length for the windows.
And then I left the room.
And when I came back…
My heart plummeted.
It was good light/bad light all over again.
It looked to me like someone had stuck a random ruffle onto a drop cloth and passed it off as curtains.
So before I make five more….let’s discuss.
Only big opinions needed 🙂
Are you good light or bad light on these?
PS Don’t give extra points to the curtains for the roses or that fun finish on the table 🙂
