DIY California Chic Ombre Curtains
This project has been a long time coming. We talked a bit here about how many curtain projects will need to be completed before I have no more naked windows in my home! In other words... almost all of them! 2 down and 2 million to go, but one by one we shall get them all covered and looking snappy!
Finally! I am excited to share the tutorial for creating these fine friends...and super excited to begin sharing the family room transformation that is occurring alongside the office transformation, the garage, the living room...oh the list goes on... we are getting a bit decor happy up in here!
What do you think? Pretty good start, no?
I cut lengths of cotton muslin, purchased in a 15 yard bolt at my local fabric store for around $20, into 4 panels at 8’. Since my backyard is something is fairly small, I chose to work on this project in my guest bathroom. If you also plan to attempt a project of this nature indoors, be sure to keep in mind that your bathroom will be otherwise unavailable for 2-4 days while your panels air dry… unless of course you get clever and find away to shower around your panels. I clipped the panels up over my shower curtain rod, thereby creating a section of the fabric that I am able to keep white; it was about 1/4 of the total length of the fabric.
