When it comes to curtains, I’m usually a “neutral” gal. When we started remodeling our master bedroom, I knew the budget would be tight. Like college years Ramen Noodle tight. I have seen many others use Drop Cloth curtains and I knew they would work well for this space. If you’re like me, I was worried I would have to learn another skill. Sewing. But guess what? You don’t! These are easy no sew farmhouse drop cloth curtains and drapes. Happy Dance!
The Main question my husband had was “do drop cloth curtains block light?”. I wouldn’t say these can be classified as blackout curtains, but they definitely block more light than other curtains I’ve owned.
No Sew Drop Cloth Curtains and Drapes
My budget for new window dressings was under $100. We only have 2 windows in our master bedroom so that saved some money right there. We had to make a Home Depot run for some supplies and I like to secretly sneak my “decor” items into the basket when my husband isn’t looking. He loves that I do that. It’s not like he’s going to force me to put it all back when we are already checking it out. You’re welcome ladies. Use that tip. Sorry fellas. Us gals have to stick together.
The drop cloths are on the painters aisle and they come in all sizes. I wanted the curtains to “pool” so I was hoping they would have the measurement I needed without any cutting required and they did. I got the smallest size they had and I believe they were 6X9. The cost was only $10 a cloth. However, the best part about these is that if you have to cut a few inches off, no biggie. It’s not easily noticed and in most cases, you can leave it just like that. No sewing required! Another plus is it already has finished edges.
Pooling of Drop Cloth Curtains
I went to the curtain aisle and found 4 packs of ring clips. Those were about $6 a pack and I used the curtain rods I already had. Another way to save money is to make your own rod. Spray paint a wood rod and hang it! You can get creative!
Curtain Ring Clips
I didn’t want traditional blinds and love adding neutral elements to a room when I can. I went over the blinds section and picked out 2 sets of rattan blinds. Those were around $20 a piece. A little more than I wanted to spend and this addition isn’t mandatory. I just like they way they pair together.
Rattan Blinds Behind Drop Cloth Curtains
I spent around $110 total for everything which isn’t a bad price to have all new window dressings!
Pro Tip: One tip I can pass along is that I washed and dried these twice before hanging to soften them up and make them smell pretty. You can also bleach them if you’re going for more of a white and bright look. I preferred the color as is.
