Home Improvement mini: part 3

We decided to get curtains for our sliders in the dining room. I decided to use burlap after seeing it in a magazine, used as a shower curtain. I was so excited when I got to Joanne's and saw that it was only $2.99 a yard, and that they had so many colors to choose from. The color I picked was called white, but it is more of an ivory. They also had oyster, chocolate brown, a great shade of green, and a coffee color.

I went to Target and found some Shabby Chic hardware.






No sewing here. I just folded down about two inches of the top, and used the ring clips.



I made them a little bit long, because I like my curtains to puddle on the floor.
This ended up being such an inexpensive and quick project.

Looks so lovely and sounds so simple. I am in the trenches of window treatments for the girls' room and the office. I just cannot decide what I want. Thanks for some inspiration!

Just one question, does the smell eventually go away? Every time I've bought burlap is stinks!

I love the color, and how it still brings in the sunlight. The curtians were made for this room. You did a lovely job. I love how they lay on the floor, I am always for longer!
Loving the mini home improvements!

That is so cool! I particularly love that burlap comes in colors and you just needed the little clippey rings, no sewing or grommets or anything! And look at how nice and airy they are!

I have always wanted curtains but have never been able to pull the trigger because A.) The husband hates them and B.) I always felt like I'd have to curtain the whole house, which I'm so not doing.

HOWEVER - I think you've just inspired me to curtain our dining room. We have these two huge windows and a nice set of pooling curtains like these would really look great in there.

Great shade of green you say?
