I know, I know, I could've just bought curtains similar to this. Trust me, I looked but just couldn't find any I liked that weren't too costly. I had to weigh my options, money versus time. Well, seeing as though I like to paint I chose to save my money and use up some of my time. As if I have an abundance of either...
It was quite simple to do. I purchased the canvas painters cloth from Home Depot. I knew I wanted the look of two drapes so I purchased the largest drop cloth they had and divided it down the middle.
The verticle tape line is where I cut it down the middle to make it two seperate pieces. I kept the tape on there when painting so I wouldn't have to use my iron on any painted surface. (Since it doesn't require sewing you will need an iron to adhere the material. I'll explain that later)
Using painters tape I marked straight blocks to give it the large striped look. Then I painted.
Next step, finish off the edges to give it more of a clean look. This is where the iron comes into place and the magical "Heat N Bond".
This is the back side. Just place the "Heat N Bond" tape where you want the hem to be.
Fold and iron.
When finishing the top, be sure to leave a loop for the curtain rod.
The time spent and the money saved was well worth it. I am very happy with the finished product!
