Easy Outdoor Drapes

I have a daylight basement that walks out onto it's own patio under our main floor deck.
It's not the prettiest of spaces, but I try to dress it up each year with DIY drop cloth drapes.
By visiting the link, you can see my cute corner with my red patio chairs.
As you can see, the space is somewhat of an eye sore. Creating a welcome place to sit looks so much better.
Click the link to see what my lazy man's way of hanging my drop cloth drapes. Easy and they actually stay. I have hooks to hold the drapes back for an open feel when wanted. See how here >>>> http://todayscreativeblog.net/outdoor-room/
Adding a table and comfortable places to sit is key. If it's not comfortable and inviting, you won't use it.
I love my little space and love how it creates a private area to enjoy the yard.

    This is the little back porch hangout we are working on.... would those type drop cloth curtains work for privacy here do you think, and how do you hang them??

    if somebody's deck DID let rain in maybe they could use shower curtains and close them when it rains. if they were clear or clear with pictures but not solid color then you could see through.
