Cheap*Deco

I don't think I have ever actually sewed a curtain, but I just really don't like store-bought curtains....so here are some alternatives....The clothesline look


The curtains-out-of-tablecloths look


The just-paint-it look



The just-hang-up-long-pieces-of-material look.

when I think of all the pains I've gone to making curtains and then -voila! - you just hang something cute up!

What a HAPPY room! I love it! And I share your affection for hanging lanterns - one day I hope to have a porch covered in them!

Do the long pieces of fabric have unfinished edges? I've been taking a sewing class and really wanted to try to make simple panels for my dining room. Fabric is so dang expensive though! I'm so scared that I'll mess it up! You've got me thinking...
