Painted Drop Cloth Curtains and Playset Refresh
Happy Hump Day Friends!
I’ve been working on giving my son’s playset a little face lift and if you missed our planter box from last week you can read about it here. Part two is a DIY curtain that we made out of a drop cloth and painted to match the planter box.
I grabbed this small drop cloth from The Home Depot and we just measured the size we needed and cut.
This is so easy I feel almost silly giving instructions :) We taped off the size of the stripes we wanted with Frog Tape and painted them with the same paint that we used on the planter box, alternating the colors.
Then I crawled into the playset and measured where the curtain rods would go. I used a super cheap tension rod and some curtain clips that I had leftover from another project.
Just like the planter box, I wasn’t worried about it being perfect so we didn’t even finish the edges. We just folded them over and clipped.
Looks like someone digs his new digs :)
We added some pea gravel to the bottom instead of sand because he doesn’t use the sandbox much and I think it’s prettier!
This was the last project in the back yard for now but I still owe you a post about our garden which is doing great.
And The Home Depot Outdoor Games Style Challenge posts will start going live in about two weeks so stay tuned! I can’t wait to see what everyone came up with!
Have a great week y’all!
What a cute idea, Summer! That playset looks very similar to the one we had, and have long outgrown…makes me sad!
Thanks so much Jennifer! I know, it makes me sad how fast they grow! That is why I couldn’t get rid of it when I was working on the Hope Depot challenge!
LOVE this and look how easy! Great work Summer!
Thanks so much Krystine!
it looks adorable! love the shot with his sweet face peeking through!
Thanks so much Cassie!
My mom said that I should use the paint drop cloth for our front porch drapes. What do you think?
Thanks Rachel! I think a big fat YES! I’m actually going to do the same thing. I’m not sure the best method yet because the paint does make them a little still so I may do a stencil or something or use spray paint instead.
