How to Make Your Curtains Fit

Measure twice, cut once

Measure your curtain drop at least twice. Make sure the length reaches the necessary level before fixing your rail and hanging the curtains.

Curtains and walls should match

Curtain colors should complement your walls. First, match the tone. Second, aim to use a different shade than the main wall color.

Customize your curtains with ease

Secure your curtains to a board. Use a roller and a stencil to apply a 2:1 mix of paint and fabric medium to create an impressive custom look.

Ditch stitches with no-sew curtains

For a custom look, use Heat N Bond adhesive hemming tape to combine fabric scarves. Iron flat and use as many scarves as needed for your drop.

Swap blinds for curtains

Replace blinds with curtains using drapery hooks. Removing the blinds, glue hooks to the top of your curtains and hang from the existing clips.

Dip Dyed Drop Cloth Curtains

Using drop cloth curtains is so easy and affordable, as well as stylish with their rustic farmhouse charm. I have been using drop cloths as curtain panels indoors and outdoors for years.
