Drop Cloth Decor

Today my friends I have a fun and super budget friendly decorating idea.  You can use simple painter’s drop cloths you can by at home improvement store to make curtains, pillows, slip covers, etc.  The options are endless.

I found a 4ft. x 15ft. drop cloth here at the Home Depot for only $17.00!  Here are some ideas on how to use these hardworking gems!

How adorable are these drop cloth curtains that the Hunted Interior did for her daughter’s big girl room?

Check out what Kate over at Centsational Girl did with drop cloth on the patio.  It has the look of an expensive cabana for much, much less!

Carmel over at Our Fifth House hit it out of the ballpark with these blue stenciled drapes.  You would never know they were made out of drop cloths and look like high-end fabric.  With the range of beautiful stencils out there, you could make anything you can dream up!

Martha Stewart herself is also on board.  She has created canopies, pillows and even an outdoor shower curtain out of drop cloths!

You could also make a hammock out of this inexpensive and easily accessible material.  Can you say Father’s Day gift?

Have you ever tried making something out of painter’s drop cloths?  Mine are mostly spattered with paint, but I may have to run out to Home Depot so I can give this a try!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Mine is going to be busy with a swim meet and ballet recital and I have about 20 home projects I want to tackle. Never enough time!
