I am so glad I made the "Curtain Call!" I really wasn't all that crazy about this look, but at the time it was better than nothing and now that I look at this picture, I am thinking nothing would have probably looked better.
Recently, I purchased a tablecloth for the dining room table for the Holidays at Target and the more I looked at it the more I started loving the colors more and more. I decided to leave it out.
But, once I did that, I started looking at the curtains.."oh dear I need to get rid of those"!
What was I thinking?
Now, if you have been following me you know how I love to turn table clothes into curtains, Right?
I wanted to make the curtains as cheap as possible.
I was just in luck when these actually went on sale... for $11.99. I picked up two table clothes thinking now that is a way to make cheap curtains and a valance.
Around $25.00 for new curtains, Not bad!

The great part about this is if you know how to sew and cut a straight line then you can make your own curtains. These have to be the easiest way to make curtains and with all the great patterns out there it makes it even easier.
Measure and Cut your table cloth to the length, you need, remember to allow room for your rod allowance and hem line. Run one straight stitch. Your sides are already done for you, how nice is that?

I love how the runner, curtains and tablecloth all coordinate with each other. It certainly brightens up the room.
The tie backs on the curtains came from the tablecloth packaging, a strip of the same material held in place with a button., too cute to waste, so I used it for the tie backs.
Now that is how you make easy, cheap curtains!
What a difference a tablecloth can make!
