I’ve been working on this bare stairwell for a couple of weeks, and today I’m showing you the finished product!
I added in some arrows with a little paint and twine to coördinate with the frames.
The final touch was curtains. I couldn’t find anything I really liked in a store for a price I was willing to pay. So I decided to create my own.
I took a trip to Home Depot and got everything I needed.
-A Drop cloth. The smallest I could find was more than enough for these curtains and under $10.
-Paint. I got a sample of Anonymous Gray by Behr.
To begin I cut the drop cloth to the size I needed. These panels are roughly 18″ x 84″. If you have been around a while you know I do not sew, so I “hemmed” the edges using a fabric adhesive. A drop cloth is hemmed on all 4 sides so,once cut, I only needed to hem 2 sides of each panel.
Once it was ironed and hemmed I laid each panel on some old cardboard and taped off a couple of stripes. I wanted some interest just at the bottom of the curtains. I Decided to do three 5 inch stripes. I mixed Anonymous Gray paint by Behr and some fabric medium and painted my stripes. A couple of coats are necessary. One coat still allowed sunlight to shine through and they looked unfinished. Two coats gave the perfect amount of coverage.
I hung them up on a simple rod and completed my little landing project.
Thanks for visiting!
