drop cloth bandwagon...

Ok, so I have joined in on the drop cloth bandwagon!
I have been trying to find some curtains to go in here that were not an arm and a leg. I search high and low, and was just not going to pay 60.00 for one panel, when I need six of them babies!

I decided to go with the drop cloth canvases. I went to my local Home Depot, and they were 9.96 for one. So, I loaded up six of them!
I washed and dried them first, and then ironed them real good with starch.
clipped them on to curtain rings and Viola!
I LOVE the texture of them, washing and drying them made a big difference in the fabric.

I LOVE how they turned out, and best of all they look expensive, but they were so cheap! I also bought a new quilt It was on clearance, I was watching it for a while hoping it would go on sale. I couldn't be happier with it.

This morning Cole had his track and field. After, Charlie and I took him to lunch. They finished up just in time, it is supposed to storm here all weekend. So we will enjoy some family home time this weekend, FINE by me!
Have a great weekend.

Those DO look expensive!

I'm trying to find something for my hall, I might have to try those...I can always add garnish or stencil if it needs more.

Great job, as ALWAYS! ;)
