I had wanted for the longest time some outdoor curtains for my back porch but my ceilings are so high back there, that soon I came to realize it was going to be very expensive to purchase some, about $550, and I was not willing to spend that much money for them.
A friend of mine, Helen, gave me this idea, She had seen it done on HGTV or on a blog, so, I decided to give it a try.
Outdoor curtains made of painters canvas drop cloth. Who would of thought!
I purchased mine at Lowes and I was able to do the whole porch for about $60.
It was not an easy project, lots of work and very time consuming, but I did it!
I also had some leftover material and I have used it since then to make pillows for my porch this last summer.
Also, for those of you that like stenciling, this material works great for that.
And the best part is that is all canvas, so it is very durable. My curtains look the same after a year of storms, cold weather and 113 degree heat this summer.
I have also had some fun decorating around them for the different seasons.
Here are some pictures.
Painters canvas drop cloth that I used.
I love the cozy feeling the curtains gave the back porch
I also have fun changing the little picks on the curtain's tie backs to match the different seasonal decor
And these are the pillows I made last summer with the leftover material.
I stenciled them in teal and apple green to match the decor I had on the porch for the summer.
I just love pillows!
So, here it is, an inexpensive project that can really change the look of your outdoor space.
Thank you for visiting!
