5 Great DIY Curtains

If you’re lucky enough to have windows in your home, you’ve likely spent a bit of time pondering the possibilities of window treatments. (And if you don’t have windows in your home…you’re likely pondering how to get some natural light inside!) Window coverings are one of the most impacting statements of style, taste, and personality, and it’s so important to “get it right.” However, they can also be very expensive. So, in an effort to provide inspiration and make things easier on you, here are some super stylish DIY curtain ideas for you to consider:

Simple Lined Linen Curtain.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s start with the basics of DIYing curtains. This tutorial is an excellent place to start, and the end result is a beautifully simple linen curtain. Bonus: it’s lined, too, which makes it an excellent candidate for a nursery or kid’s bedroom. Sometimes, with curtains, less is more. I think these are lovely.{found on julieblanner}.

Ombre Ruffle Curtain.

Really, they had me at “ombre.” And, fine, “ruffle,” too. Although this was created as a shower curtain, I think it would be fabulous as a regular window curtain, especially in a girl’s bedroom or cheery laundry room. A very easy DIY with a huge impact.{found on itstaylormade}.

Grosgrain Ribbon Curtain.

The possibilities of this sweet-and-chic little number are endless. What a quick and easy way to spruce up fairly blah stock curtains! The placement of the stripes is key here, nearly at eye level, and the varied widths and hues of ribbon make this interesting and colorful. I love this.{found on onelittleminuteblog}.

Painted Chevron Curtain.

It doesn’t get much easier than painting something to give it a fresh, new look. Taping out the chevron pattern is obviously the most time-consuming part. These curtains are bold and graphic and fabulous. The yellow paint is an excellent choice here, although that is of course easily customizable to fit your own space.{found on theblissfulbeeblog}.

Stenciled Drop Cloth Curtain.

These drapes are a fabulously stylish way to upcycle drop cloths! Stenciling on the bottom portion gives the drape pattern and a very slight ombre look. These are lovely, and I love how thick and durable they are – great for filtering light when the curtains are drawn. And, as always with anything DIY, the stencil could be anything you like that works in your space. Fabulous.{found on creativeoutletsofathriftymindedmomma}.
