Yep. I used picnic tarps. Hey, it's a Spiderman room, we aren't exactly going for the classiest decor award here
Do you know how much curtains cost??? It's really hard to find them for under $10 a panel. Even if I were to buy my own fabric and make them, it would come to about $10 a panel... and that's using the cheapest fabric around (with a coupon).
These were $4.99 each at Home Depot! I've either hit rock bottom or I've struck gold in finding and using these. Maybe a little bit of both :)
I'm not going to pretend that this is the most luxurious fabric ever. They are a little, um, stiff. The red side feels like fabric and they are backed with a silver plastic-type material. But they fit our needs perfectly for now!
Another update to the room: trim! My amazing husband put chair rail and window trim up.
All the windows in our house looked like this.
And then I saw a post at House of Hepworths for how to fix these eyesores!!! So easy and soooo much better.
One more pic of the room so far
the wall color above the chair rail is Sherwin Williams Online; below the chair rail is Sherwin Williams Web Gray
I feel like this room redo is dragging on forever! More to come. Hopefully we'll have it all wrapped up in another week or two.
What do you think? Are you going to go tarp your windows?
