Cheap, Easy & Durable Outdoor Solution
Then last week while visiting a dear friend of mine (whose countryside home sits on 10 acres with wide open views) I noticed something. She hung beautiful drapes around her porch, or so I thought. Turns out that they were just drop cloths. Traditionally used for painting, my friend used them as Pottery Barn style outdoor curtains. So of course, what did I do the very next morning ---- go and buy drop cloths of course!
So - let's take a look at what I used to get this project completed...(laborer husband not included :-)
What You'll Need...
#1 - You need to purchase one drop cloth per end of your curtain rod. I needed four in total and the 6'x9' length was perfect for me. Each cloth was about $10
#4 - I purchased two 10' sections of 3/4" copper pipe. This became my custom curtain rod and ended up being the exact size I needed for my space. You could always find longer pieces if need be and a lot of stores will even trim up the pipe for you if needed.
A closer look at the fan and copper rod. Trust me - this was a great project to take on when you aren't looking for hard work, just major impact.
I just love how these turned out! It was a really easy project and it adds quite a bit of curb appeal !
Hope you enjoyed the post --- thanks for stopping by! xo
