Clever Drape Idea

I might be behind the times on this cause it seems like everyone has already heard about this thrifty little idea...but maybe you haven't, so i will share.
Drapes made from Painters Drop Cloths!

They give a similar look to linen drapes but for a much better price tag...

These are the drapes that are being mimicked:


Pottery Barn's Peyton Linen Drapes


Layla Palmer at the lettered cottage blogged about this great idea as a wonderful substitution...

see how the fabric drop cloths have a great natural looking texture...

Here are a couple other peeps who have utilized the drop cloth as draperies... Homebody



and Judy at DIY...she fancied hers up a bit with some contrasting fabric at the bottom...

such a great idea...might have to make use of this one is my houseperhaps in the living room.

...but if I do I don't think I will use the clip on rings...I think I will sew hook on the back, every 4" and slip the hooks through eyelet rings...I think this will help the drapes lay better.

I wonder if the drop cloths could be dyed...hmmm. What do you think?
