• Dropcloth Drapes

    I finally figured out how to get 96″ tall curtains, that look like the ones from Pottery Barn in the photo above, for less than $10.00 a panel.

    Use canvas painters dropcloths!

    I got mine at Lowes, and I LOVE them.
    They were $9.99 per dropcloth, and they each measure 6 feet wide by 9 feet tall!
    All four sides come pre-hemmed, so unless you need to alter the height, they are ready-to-hang.

    I’m going to add some sort of trim to the edges of mine to customize them, and give them some personality.

    (hemmed edges)

    I love their heaviness, and the little flecks of tan and brown in them…

    They’re washable too. I washed mine, and hadn’t yet ironed them before I took these photos. Please excuse all the wrinkles!

    They look great flanking my new linen press. (I have officially decided to call it that because I love the way it sounds so much):

    And look how great they coordinate with the $7.00 tablecloth I got at TJ Maxx!

    (By the way, I’m stripping all eighty layers of paint off that apple green back door and staining it walnut in the near future!)

    Oh! Speaking of the linen press- I borrowed the lamp I use in my Reading Room to see what it would be like to have a lamp on top of it.

    This lamp is too small to use here, but I loved the warm glow it created in the Dining Room tonight. Definitely need to get a permanent lamp in here soon!
    I made the seashell lamp from an old 1950’s lamp I spray painted white. I glued on shells I picked up in Pensacola, and from Michaels. Never throw a lamp away because you think it’s ugly! Any lamp can always be revitalized.

    I take that back.
