How to Make Pottery Barn Like Linen Curtains!


I wanted to add curtains to help soften the lines of the bamboo blinds in my Ladies Lounge and to help break up the colors so it wasn’t one big wall of brown. The only issue is that there are 7 windows in this room, so I knew buying curtains was going to be a pretty big expense. Especially when I decided I liked the look of Pottery Barn’s Emery Linen Drape. 7 panels of those would have cost $973! If I had chosen to go down the store bought path, I would have also had an issue with the width of the panels. The windows are only 30” wide, and I didn’t want them to be overwhelmed by 2 -54” panels framing out each window.
I went to Joann’s and took a look at all the linens they had and found something that is very similar-Sew Classics Linen. Best part was my total cost was under $150!

    Depends on your layout. If you create a pattern with th different colors, I think it would look cute!

    Where is your hardware and rod from?

      @Melissa The rods were existing from the previous owners. We just spray painted them. The clips are from Lowes, and were way cheaper than what I saw at Target. The link to them is on the blog.
