I had a fun opportunity to join 12 other lovely ladies on a summer at home blog tour last week.
It was a busy week!
I didn’t get all I planned done. How often does that happen to you? I hope I’m not in the minority because it happens to me daily!
I hung drop cloth outdoor curtains that had a large 14-inch stripe along the bottom.
You can even see the stripe in this photo!
You can barely see red peeking out on the right side of the table.
All that work and it didn’t show!
I only wanted the curtains to add something bright to our porch. The cabin is dark brown, the stone floor is dark, the ceiling is dark wood, and the posts are dark logs.
I used the same method on these curtains as the grain sack inspired curtains for our guest room upstairs.
I hung them inexpensively using rebar 3/8 inch. They came with a red mark on the ends, perfect! The rebar is attached to the wood with eye hooks. Simple clip rings hold the curtain. I tied a rope onto the ends to hold things in place and to match the rope I added to our porch swing.
Now you can see the red! And the spindle chandelier. Here’s the post about the spindle chandelier.

Thank you Joanne! I just visited your lovely website. Congrats on starting the world of blogging! ~Jeanette
That’s fantastic Jeanette. Here in the city I have a three fold “privacy screen” on my patio separating me from over looking the garden of The Louds Next Door…not their real name. It’s actually an old vintage beach screen, but it’s bright and orange and really has a cheerful sunny glow. The reason I’m telling you this is because it tends to act as a sail in the West Coast wind, and the other day it smashed a terracotta pot and snapped one of its side supports, so not the ideal situation. I’m thinking that curtains would be much better and was looking around for the right kind of fabric. DROP CLOTHS! There it is! Love that you added the red stripe.
Veronica, I’m sure the drop cloths with work perfect to block “the louds!” They paint great! Imagine that. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by ~Jeanette
