Drop Cloth Drapes

{The Lettered Cottage} has a wonderful and cheap idea for tall drapes. Use painters canvas drop cloths! Why didn't I think of that!!? You just pick them up for $10 a piece at the hardware store along with a few of these curtain clips: They come in many styles, colors, and sizes.

Then you hook them up and get a curtain rod. Bam! Really nice long drapes with a very small price tag.

Or, here is another way to do it. This image is from {Lola B's} and this room is amazing, so click on that link and go check it out.

I believe she got these drapes from {Ikea} where they're only $20 for the pair of 96" long drapes. Pretty good deal. But, you could also make these using the drop cloth idea and just finishing the top off with tabs made from strips of the drop cloth. Easy and so chic!!

And lastly, here is a great tutorial from {A Penny Saved}. She made Roman shades out of drop cloths and a few other supplies.

So Potterybarn! And from the looks of the tutorial so easy!

Don't worry! We're still working on our own drop cloth drapes and you'll be the first to get a picture! We just got detoured on working on our fabulous new bedroom! I just really wanted to have it all together before we sent you pictures of your work, but we're getting so close!
