My basement patio is one of my favorite places to sit and listen to the birds sing. The patio is much cooler than the deck above it, especially in the morning and early afternoon. I've been wanting to add a drop cloth curtain just to give a little more privacy between the neighbors on our north side, especially when I go outside and sit when I'm still in my pj's .
C'mon, I know y'all do the same thing!
The only thing I had to purchase for this project was a 6' x 9' drop cloth, which was less than $12. I had everything else... a dowel, bronze spray paint, clip on curtain rings and jute twine. After spray painting the clips (they were black) and the rod, Mr. Fanatic attached the rod to the underside of the deck with a u shaped nail.
Then, he folded over the drop cloth so it wouldn't drag on the ground
I braided some of the twine for a tie back. Mr. F. attached a hook to the brick.
Drop cloth curtains have got to be the easiest project there is! There isn't any sewing because the edges are already sewn. I "made" drop cloth curtains for my youngest daughter's room and they look great!
Here's a bigger peek of my basement patio.I still have even more to show you for this outdoor space. Hope you'll come back to see it!
