Over the weekend I was at Home Depot getting some supplies for a paint project I was working on. I was in the paint prep aisle when suddenly these beauties came to mind:
|The Lettered Cottage|
I’d seen these a while back at The Lettered Cottage, and loved them! Yes, those are curtains, no big deal right? Look closer. They’re made from common home improvement store drop cloths! Yup the stuff you throw on the floor to catch drips and messes, is actually made out of lovely canvas that when hung up looks like linen!
They come in various sizes, I chose the 9×6’s. At under $10 each, I just couldn’t pass them up. I mean if I mess up, I can always use them as actual drop cloths, right?!
|Laid them out, sprayed, after they dried, flipped them over and painted the other side.|
I wanted them to look a little more ‘custom’, so I folded the top down 15″ and created a faux ‘valance’ to sort of frame them. They’re 9 ft. in height so there is plenty of room to experiment!
I chose not to add any embellishments because I like the simplicity they offer as-is for my particular space. However, you can certainly sew on some trim, or even paint a nice pattern (it’s canvas!), the possibilities are endless!
