Every time it rains, I had to move the wood furniture on our porch to the center of the porch and cover them with plastic tarps so they wouldn't get ruined.

That not only doesn’t look nice, it’s also just annoying!

We were not able to enjoy the porch like we would like to because I was constantly moving things.

So I came up with the perfect, inexpensive solution: add curtains on the sides of the porch that I can pull out when it’s raining!

I made them with $10 shower curtain liners that look like fabric.

They have been working like a charm for 2 years now! They have not ripped, and when they get dirty, I can throw them into the washing machine.

My sweet husband, a finish carpenter, helped me to put up the cable on the porch. All he had to do is screw in two screws, and then we were able to hang the curtains!
Voila - DIY porch curtains! They repel the rain, plus give us more privacy.

    I like the idea, but how do you know which direction the rain will fall? Most times the rain does NOT come straight down...it is either slanted to the left or right!

    How do you keep the curtain from blowing up in the wind?
