Easy and inexpensive tablecloth curtains

I am a HUGE fan of drop cloth curtains, but tablecloth curtains are now the front runner.

When we moved into the new house I fell in love with the super tall ceilings in our new home.

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.

Two large windows with white cafe curtains behind two wood chairs with rattan seats. Under the chairs are a black and white floral round rug. Theres'a black small table between the two chairs with a plant that has purple flowers on top. To the left of the wood chairs is a black cabinet with a water kettle on top.

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.

I also hung the curtain rod right up under the crown moulding and after I got everything situated, I gave the tablecloth curtains a good steam with my Rowenta handheld steamer.

Final thoughts on tablecloth curtains

The tablecloth curtains are thicker than a sheer curtain, but not as thick as a standard curtain.

White curtains hanging from black curtain rods on the left. White bedside table with black knobs to the right. On top of the white side table is a white pitcher filled with fall florals on top of a cream colored book. Flooring is a lighter colored wood.

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.

The bed has white linens with accents of a rust colored pillow and rust colored knitted blanket. Theres a white knitted pillow behind a smaller pillow with the name "Cribbs" lettered across.

Plus, no one will know unless I tell them…. or they read this blog post. 😉
