Curtain Ideas For Living Room

I HATE paying for curtain panels and hanging hardware! I gets those granny panties I had to pay for in a bunch (wait, what?) Love all of these ideas. Except when I’d have to sew. But if I can make my mom do it so her machine won’t kill my fingers? AWESOME. I haven’t posted about it yet, because I wanted to see how the whole thing holds up, but I’ve recently hung a VERY okie-fied curtain in my oldest son’s room. It involves the use of the flat sheet he’s never used, heavy fishing line, and 2-inch wood blocks. I KNOW! I’ve also recently discovered the existence of replacement parts for vertical blinds. And they are METAL. My current verticals (in the dining room, on the largest window in the house of course) are all plastic parts. I’ve a mind to switch the hanging tabs out for the metal, hang the traverse high and add a huge stenciled dropcloth, ahem, CURTAIN. So, the goal for that one is, 1 – no sewing; 2 – no plastic; 3 – under $50. Dropcloths are cheap, but they ain’t free.

For curtain rods, I use the wooden dowel that you use to put a rod in your closet. It’s at Home Depot or Lowe’s in the aisle with the quarter round and the moldings. I cut it myself right at the store to the exact right length. I buy the end finials there (they screw into the ends of the dowel and there are a few choices) and wooden clip-on curtain rings. Oh, you gotta get the brackets too. Then I hang them up at home and pin the bottoms of the curtains so they are the exact right length even if the floor is uneven. You have to stain or paint the dowel/closet rod and you can buy natural unfinished rings and brackets too and finish it all the same. You can paint all of it to match your trim, or stain it to match your furniture, or buy the brackets and curtain rings already finished. It looks custom and high end and it’s easy! I open the sun roof of my car and put the rod through it to get it home.

PLEATS – Pencil pleats These tidy and consistent folds at the top of the curtain resemble the size of a pencil, hence the name. These curtains are hung with drapery hooks attached to the back of the curtains where they can’t be seen, and then hooked onto a rod system. TIP: This curtain style in sheer fabric is perfect for a family room with large glass windows or doors, particularly when there is sunlight flooding the room.

I used to own a condo built in the early ’70s. It had an 8′ sliding glass door in the living room and, in many ways, that was great. (I happened to be first floor, so moving the furniture in through a 4′ opening? Awesome.) However, as you might guess about anything built in the early ’70s, you would have to try really hard to make it any more energy inefficient. I could sit on the couch about 15 feet across the room (dining/living room was one big room) and feel the cold creeping across the floor to my feet. (And I live in Raleigh, NC! It still felt that cold.) As you curtain-buying/making folks might guess, curtains to cover an 8′ sliding glass door were not easy or affordable to come by — most sets are just short enough (made for a 6′ door) that I would have had to buy another set to cover the whole door.

Curtain poles Curtain poles, or rods, are a really versatile way to hang different types of curtains. They are available in different sizes and can be made from a number of different materials.

I can’t remember if the idea came to me in advance or if I was wandering around Kmart and saw the Martha Stewart fleece blankets on sale, for like $20 every size. Best of all, they had red, which was my living room accent color. I bought two king-size blankets, sewed a pocket across the top, slid them onto the curtain rod and voila! And they made a HUGE difference in the comfort of the living room. They also looked pretty good and most visitors had no idea they were fleece blankets until I pointed it out.

I thought it said there was an idea of how to make an antique quilt into a curtain. Any ideas. I really love my old quilts, but not for the bed. I need some curtains so thought of making them into curtains, but need advise or ideas. Thanks

These are really great ideas! Every time I think about buying a new set of curtains for my living room, I remember how much they cost. Also, when I go to most department stores, I notice that a lot of the curtains are kind of plain. It’s not really worth it to spend my money on something I don’t really even like. Not only are these ideas extremely creative, but they also fit into my budget. I’m sure that once I finish trying some of these ideas, lots of my friends are going to be asking how I came up with them since they will want to give them a try too. Click here to read full article
