I have been on the hunt for curtains for our back living room for a long time now and it really seemed like an impossible task. I wanted to find some block print curtains that were lightweight, extra long, and not expensive. Everything I was finding was either not in our color palette, too expensive, or not tall enough for our Andersen French doors. I had to get creative and it made me fall in love with this space even more than I had before.
I realized I wasn’t going to find anything that I loved, so I had to take it into my own hands and make something that I wanted for the space. I’ve done it before, but it took me a minute to think of the DIY tablecloth curtains that I’ve made in the past because I ran into this same issue. So, when the idea struck again, I started to search for tablecloths that I loved and I found these at Pottery Barn and instantly knew that they would make beautiful block print curtains. I purchased curtain rods and curtain ring clips.
The DIY no sew tablecloth curtains are super easy to make. It’s simply clipping the rings at the top of the tablecloth and hanging them on your curtain rod. You can “hem” the curtain for length by folding over the fabric and clipping to make them shorter. The best part of using tablecloths as curtains? Fabric by the yard can get really pricey, so $70 for a curtain panel that is already hemmed for you is a great option. You can also use flat sheets, drop cloths, and other options like this, but the tablecloth curtain will always be a favorite of mine.
You can see more sources for the room. Have you used this method before? I hope this helps those of you out there looking for a cozy curtain option that won’t break the bank and will elevate your space in a unique way.
