Drop Cloth Curtains

Over the years I’ve used drop cloths as curtains in different ways in different settings in many different houses.

I love their natural color.

I love the woven texture.

I love their price tag (about $10 per panel).                                                                                        Sharing a few ways to use them plus tricks and tips.


You can extend the length of a panel by adding colorful or patterned fabric.

I had just enough of this gorgeous Ethan Allen fabric left over from a project to elongate and add color to panels in our living room.


Pre-wash them with lots of laundry softener and pull from the dryer quickly to avoid ironing.  { I hate to iron and avoid it at all costs }


Grab 2 packs of drapery clips while you are there- it’s a ring that slides on the rod with a clip attached. You will want one pack per panel.

Fold the top left edge of the panel towards the back and add a clip.  Fold the top right edge of the panel towards the back and add a clip.  Evenly space the remaining clips by pinching a 1/2-1″ pleat and add the clips.


I’ve used drop cloth curtains in almost every room of the house including outside on our pergola. I added scotch guard to help resist mildew outdoors.

If you need panels that don’t break the bank and look amazing pick up some DROP CLOTHS!

All the best – Kristen
