Now it is my turn to turn a canvas drop cloth into great curtains! Yea!
What I thought was going to be a 2-3 hour job turned into a 2 day job!! Not b/c of lack of trying, but b/c of lack of materials and home improvement store slackers! LOL
|Back Porch...Covered deck but still super hot.|
|Check out the sun...Brutal|
Alright-I initially bought these to start the project.
|Metal conduit pipes. 2 @ $7.50 ish @ Home Depot 6'5.5" each. We cut them to make 4 poles. TOTAL $15|
|No shot of the cutting!|
|Needed "help" w/ the hanging of the poles!|
|Hubs was actually kinda into this project! He thought it was a great idea. He asked me where I got it from! I said "blog-world, where else!"|
|Great shot of the hanging pole!!|
|We then came to the conclusion to use these. A good decission just more cash flow than I initially wanted to use. About $5 per box of 10 gromets (I bought 5 boxes, used 42) and $2 for 12 hooks (I bought 4 boxes, used 42) TOTAL $33|
|I laid a plastic tarp down on the driveway and measured out the placement of gromets on the canvas.|
|My tools. It is very easy to set gromets and such a great finished product.|
|Kinda hard to get the whole view from this picture but this is the corner and back of the deck.|
|This is the other corner and back. I love the end result!|
