Since I am on vacation this week, I asked a couple friends of mine to guest post here on A Spectacled Owl. Barbara, owner of Chase The Star, asked me what post I’d like for her to share. I thought about it awhile & realized I would love for her to share the first post I ever read on her blog. She wrote this post in June of 2012 and I remember bookmarking it, showing it to my husband Daniel, pinning it…pretty much everything because I love it so much. Barbara has been wonderful enough to share this with you all & I can’t thank her enough. Please make sure to check out her site, Chase The Star & you can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ & Pinterest.
Over the weekend I was at Home Depot getting some supplies for a paint project I was working on. In the paint supplies aisle I remembered a few pins for DIY curtains I’d seen. You know the cloth you throw on the floor to catch drips and messes? It’s actually made out of lovely canvas that when hung up looks like linen!
They come in various sizes, I chose the 9×6’s. At under $10 each, I just couldn’t pass them up. I mean if I mess up, I can always use them as actual drop cloths, right?!
I wanted them to look a little more ‘custom’, so I folded the top down 15″ and created a faux ‘valance’ to sort of frame them. They’re 9 ft. in height so there is plenty of room to experiment!
