You may have noticed that I am not your normal DIY blogger. Most of my blogging friends do projects for their homes and have beautiful pictures of their projects staged in the location the project was meant for. Well I must admit that a lot of my projects are done backwards. Take for instance these DIY curtains I made out of a drop cloth. I wanted to make outdoor curtains for the lake house. As you have probably realized most of my current projects have been for our lake house fixer upper. But, like so many of my projects I made them before I was actually ready for them so they could be filmed for my weekly syndicated DIY segment.
Here is a peek of the final show staging in the studio where we film in my shop. Not exactly where they will be forever, that photo will have to come later. Sorry readers, not everything is always real in blog world or TV land. What is real is that I am totally in love with these DIY curtains and I can’t wait to put them up in their forever home at the lake in a few weeks!
This curtain project is the perfect marriage between my contracting job and my love of an industrial look! Drop cloths have become a favorite for DIY curtains, especially for the sewing-challenged do-it-yourselfer (is that a word lol) like me. I love the shabby chic/farmhouse look, they’re cheap and wait for it…wait for it…they are already hemmed! What’s not to love? My twist on the drop cloth curtain is that I used chain link braces and carriage bolts to complete these beauties with the perfect outdoor industrial charm. Let’s get started…
