Drop Cloth Drapery Panels

MISC 04.26.15
When remodeling my son's room, I knew I wanted long drapery panels ... I just didn't want to have to spend too much on all that fabric. The solution? Simple canvas painter's drop cloth paired with less than a yard of pricier designer fabric and some ribbon to give the panels a much richer look ...

    I wondered-do you think fabric glue could work? They are a great idea and just "rough" enough looking for the men in our lives.

    @Dee W I think fabric glue would work fine. I only had to hem the tops and bottoms so you could absolutely fabric glue those seams ...

    I own an Events space in Nashville. I used these with icicle lights over the top and down the sides of the 'curtains' that was simply placed over a temporary curtain rod ( an iron pipe!). It was a fabulous backdrop for the bride and grooms cake table-
