DIY No Sew Farmhouse Style Drop cloth Curtains
The new house in Connecticut has 3 bedrooms and a master suite. Being that we are "empty-nesters" now, we have 3 rooms that can be turned into something else since the kids won't occupy them. I really don't appreciate wasted space so each room needs to be used for more than just a dust collecting guest room.
One of the rooms will be called the 'military room' and I am excited to design it in a vintage army style with muted earthy tone colors, along with burlap and a rustic undertone. (If that makes any sense)... no, I am not a designer and don't know the language - I just know what I like.
Today I put up the curtains. Paint drop cloths worked brilliantly to go with my theme!
$10 each - 6x9 Medium Duty 8oz Canvas Drop Cloth (Lowe's)
$5 each - Clip Rings - Oil Rubbed Bronze, fits up to 1" rods, 7 in a pack (Walmart)
I washed the drop cloths and then hung them - folding the cloth at the top so it will slightly hang on the floor.
Can't wait to hang the American Flag made of wood by Flags of Valor! It was a gift from our most awesome neighbor back in New York. Hard to even call him a neighbor, he was more like family. (We miss you Joe!)
I moved to the Point Beach neighborhood in Milford, Connecticut in June of 2018 - these are my experiences of owning a new beach home and relocating to unfamiliar territory. ~ Shelly Straub
