I have been searching for the perfect fabric to make curtains with for months and I finally found it. I found this tablecloth at Target the other week and decided it would make great curtains. The colors match the den/kitchen walls perfectly and the pattern is contemporary (which my husband loves). The tablecloths were $18 each and I ended up needing 2 for this project. I have about half of one of the tablecloths leftover so I'm thinking about making some pillows for the sofas and napkins for the kitchen table.
$36 for window treatments for 5 windows - what a great deal!
|Sterp 1: Iron the fabric|
|Step 2: Cut fabric to correct size and pin|
|Since the fabric is really a tablecloth some of the sides were already hemmed...awesome|
|Step 3: Sew|
|For a valence/cornice you need a large center piece and two smaller side pieces|
|Step 4: Cut wood - I cut mine two inches wider than the window|
|Step 5: Glue fabric to wood and screw in "l" brackets|
|Step 6: Attach to wall|
|I created a valence for above the kitchen sink with some of the extra fabic.|
