Tablecloth Window Panels!




If you have seen any of my Fall tablescapes
you may have noticed my plaid window panels.


See how they match the
 little round table?

Well that's because they
are actually tablecloths.


Tablecloths come in  widths of 60"
and lengths up to 120" or even more.


I just took curtain rings that
 have clips and attached them
 about 4-5"from the top.

 The standard is about seven
 clips per stationary panel.

It gives a very casual relaxed look.


The size of the tablecloth you
buy  determines the amount of
 "puddle". I haven't even cut them.
Just folded them in half lengthwise.


This is a really inexpensive way to
 get LONG panels that you can
change out for the holidays.

I didn't do an actual tutorial on how
to do this because it is SO simple.
If you have questions I will gladly
answer back here in the comments.


I know that there have been a LOT
of curtains made out of dropcloths
That color just doesn't work for me.

So I came up with this idea... 'cause
I liked the colors in the plaid table-
cloth on the round accent table.

I think it looks real warm and inviting.
What do you think?


Now please go and visit Gina's Transformation Thursday over at The Shabby Chic Cottage.

BTW... Some of you may not have heard that I am moving back to California...

Here I am taking a picture of an area of La Quinta. This is one of the cities where we are looking to live. It is is the  Palm Spring/Palm Desert area of California.


Palm trees and mountain views on all sides of the valley. The mountains in this picture have light snow on them in the winter, but the valley stays at a moderate temperature. It is sunny about 360 days a year ( rains 3-6 ") and it does get hot in the summer!


I hope to share more info on my move.
(I have some pictures of the desert)

Just give me a few days as I will be
 very busy getting the house ready.

Once again... Hubby gets to go off first
and I will be left to tie up the loose ends.

Thank goodness for the corporate
moving package... I won't have to do
much, if any packing!

Beautiful panels and they match so wonderfully. I love any idea that is both beautiful and easy. Hugs, Cindy S.

Honey, I've been perusing your blog and yes, you have the same curtains I do but I think they're the other color. I love them. Cheap and does the trick for me, chick! What a delightful blog you have.

Palm Springs??? My son golfs there frequently and just loves their courses and the fact that it stays warm or HOT is even more attractive to him.

Thanks for your visit and your lovely comment. Stick around. I doubt you'll be too disappointed. ;-)

xoxo,
Connie
