The Dining Room, I would say, is getting close.....There is one of the biggest Plate Glass windows, that I have ever seen in this room. And, It has a great view....NOT of the sunroom and a door. You know curtains are Expensive. Burlap is all the rage....and I have seen them all over the web....and you know Burlap is cheap. I've seen pictures and pictures, but not really any directions, so you've lucked up. I am going to show you how, I did mine.
I want to apologize for the low quality pictures. I got several with my camera, before it said, "Batteries are Exhausted," Really....thank goodness for phones.
I have seen pictures with curtains on branches, and on different types of rods. I decided to go branch hunting. I found the Perfect Branch, the perfect length....Until I broke off the small end...Sanding on it. So, the next best thing. I cut it and left a gap between the two sides.
|This is how we attached the branch to the wall, screw and wire.|
Measure the length of curtain needed for your window. I think that they look better hung higher as shown in my photo. It also makes your window look larger. Add a half an inch for your seam at the top. I used the 3/8 in Heat Bond Hem, turned over the edge at the top only and ironed. Then, I couldn't decide what I was going to use to attach.....I fly by the seat my pants alot and according to others I fly on a broom...Ha!
Now, back to this picture. I wanted my curtains puckered at the top. Some of the pictures that I have seen of burlap curtains just don't look like they hang well. So, I picked a string near the top of curtain and pulled, (be careful or you can pull it all the way out) Pull string and work your fabric into a pucker. You can locate the string on the other end, and pucker your fabric from that end as well. I then tied several knots in the string and cut off the excess.
Here they are.....Finished!
I have found that one project always leads to another. I have so many in my head, I just can't get to them all. But, I want to do a Stained glass window to hang in the middle...to hide that wonderful view of the sunroom door.
Don't be a LURKER......Please leave a comment that you have visited. Or any questions that I might can help you with......
