I believe we all want to make our homes beautiful and it can become very stressful at the cost of how expensive home decor can cost.


I’m here to show you a cheap , no sew curtain that’s gorgeous!!!!!











No sewing, no hassle. I love these so much and I will probably use them in our home forever. If you’ve never tried drop cloth curtains, I’d definitely suggest giving them a go. You just can’t go wrong at $11 for two curtain panels! Since they are canvas I actually think they’re a bit heavier than your typical curtain. They’re certainly not black-out curtains, but they still do a great job when it comes to keeping light out. They are AWESOME. I hope this step by step drop cloth curtain tutorial was helpful.

    I’m wondering if the drop cloth can be dyed for a different color?

    I have 90” from my ceiling to floor. Are drop cloths long enough to accommodate? Thank you.

      Drop cloths are available at Home improvement stores and also at Harbor Freight and they come in several different sizes.

    I've always loved the idea of doing this but wondered would they be thick enough to be sun blocking; summers in the south are brutal and we get a lot of sun.
