Grain Sack Inspired Curtains From Drop Cloths & Sew!

One of our guest rooms in the cabin has twin beds, rustic, and youthful. At least that's where I keep the toy box. We needed curtains. Not for privacy since the room is upstairs and we live next to the woods, but guests usually are uncomfortable in a unfamiliar place without curtains.
I didn't want to spend a lot or sew at all!
So, I bought three 6 x 9 drop cloths to cut in half for three windows. I also bought one 9 x 12 for a shower curtain. Guests like shower curtains too!
I had everything else needed for the project. A little black paint, painters tape, a small paint roller, and an afternoon.
Grain Sack Inspired Curtains from drop cloths.
Easy, the paint doesn't have to be applied evenly.
I cut away the sewn edges and frayed all four sides.
Hanging in the "kids" guest room.
I folded the top edge 14 inches and hung with clips. Simple and basic for our cabin.

    these are great and I'm just about to move to our new farm and this is what I'm doing. Here's my question: you must have washed the drop clothes first? Or no?

    Have you washed these after the paint?? If so, how does the painted hold up???
