I have a window on my backyard patio. I am thinking about putting some curtains up to it on the outside to dress it up a bit. Has anyone ever done that?

    Why not be the first? Sounds like a neat idea.

      @Marion Nesbitt Thanks so much. I hung a scarf curtain made out of an outdoor BHG tablecloth. We will see how it holds up. It gives a lot of color. I hope to submit a picture soon.

    Shower curtains could be used as waterproof curtains

    Treated canvas fabric. DIY or store-bought shutters or painted fabric panel inserts? Although I have not seen outdoor curtains, there is a store called outdoor curtains. these curtains have grommets. you might get some ideas looking at their website.

    Visit a stained glass store and consider replacing the window. Interesting textured glass that allow light to transmit but still give privacy.

      @Thymetogarden I like that idea. I may try that in the future. I hung a scarf curtain this morning made out of a BHG outdoor tablecloth. We will see how well it holds up. It gives the patio a pop of color.

    JoAnn's or Home Depot have Contact type privacy designs. I use it on my side door which is all glass on the top half and affords a view into my kitchen from the street. I get the light but don't lose the privacy. It is easy to cut and apply.
