    “Decorating with drop cloth drapes”

    Drop cloths may be the new decorating rage.
    The price of curtains ranges dramatically, and depending on how many windows you have to cover, it can be a big expense.
    A thrifty solution is using painter’s canvas
    drop cloths as curtains. That is what Layla Palmer of The Lettered Cottage did. Now if I hadn’t shared that those were drop cloths in the photo…would you have known?
    ⇒ Each drop cloth was a mere $9.99 and measures 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.
    ⇒ Wash and dry before hanging. Ironing is optional.
    ⇒ Easy to customize by adding trim to the edges.
    What else you could do with a drop cloth? Table cloth, picnic blanket, or car blanket for those times when you have to change a tire or sit on the lawn to watch a child’s soccer game.
    Drop cloths can be found at your local hardware and big box stores (see list below).
