I am a HUGE fan of drop cloth curtains, but tablecloth curtains are now the front runner.
On the other hand, when we started talking about adding curtains I started getting sick thinking of how expensive it would be to get the curtains the length that I needed.

One can research for days on the proper length of curtains and some of it depends on where the curtains are being hung.
For example, in our coffee nook I opted for cafe curtains.
I typically like for my longer curtains to touch and slightly pool on the floor.
In our primary bedroom we have thick craftsman style moulding and our ceilings (thankfully) aren’t as tall as the rest of the downstairs.
How did I even figure out tablecloths for curtains?
Shopping for table linens and a lightbulb went off when I looked at the measurements of the tablecloth, I just knew they would be the perfect length for our primary bedroom.
Drop cloth curtains are appealing because of their price, which is also why I fell in love with the price of the tablecloth at only $17.00 per panel.
The best part, I wouldn’t need to do any sewing because all I needed were these black curtain clip rings.
Drop cloth curtains are more of a light natural linen look, but since I wanted white curtains, the tablecloth is the perfect option for me.
Final thoughts on tablecloth curtains
The tablecloth curtains are thicker than a sheer curtain, but not as thick as a standard curtain.
They’re definitely not good if you need a total black out curtain, but for us we still wanted some light to get in, we just want it more filtered.
Tablecloth curtains are a great budget friendly alternative to regular curtains.
Since tablecloths are meant to be washed, they should be easy to keep clean.
And if you love a little variety, changing out your curtains seasonly makes tablecloth curtains an ideal option.
