There is just something about repetition that is just straight up soothing! You know what else evokes relaxation? White billowy curtains, so airy, so open. DO you know what isn’t calming? Dropping lots of moo-lah on said billowy, soothing, relaxing, airy curtains. You may have seen this luxurious look on the pages of major designer catalogs, they also come complete with big price tags. So today I showing you how I created this look for less. WAY LESS, try $5 a panel! You read right, $5 a panel.
Here is what I did. I made a trip to every single Walmart in the surrounding area and bought every single twin size FLAT sheet available. Unfortunately, you cannot order these online, so you will need track them down.
The great part about these panels is that they are a no-sew option. I would highly suggest these Curtain Rings with Clips (1″) , they are an unbeatable price. You will need approximately 9 rings per panel.
Before you start clipping the rings in place I would suggest removing some of the major wrinkles. To make life easy, I sprayed them with a spritzer water bottle and tossed them in a dryer. It didn’t remove all the wrinkles, but it removed most of them. We would later use a steamer on them, but you might want to consider ironing them if you are a perfectionist.
Alright, let’s clip these things! I spaced these approximately 7.5 inches apart.
That’s it! It’s a one and done kind of deal! Now, if you are loving the continuous curtain rod, good news it was cheap too! It is actually several Ikea rods that I used together. In order to do this I just removed the plastic cap on the ends of the rod and slid into another curtain rod, and repeated as necessary. Easy Peasy.
On this wall I used two panels per grouping. I wanted these to be fairly full. So for this full wall we only spent $50 on all of the curtain panels. That could easily spend more on just one curtain panel from a designer store! Boo-yah.
