I have 2 sets of French Doors in my house. Both have a bay to add some depth to the room. But with that depth comes a whole new problem. The cost of getting window coverings. Have you seen the prices for window treatments for bay windows, let alone doors. I searched high and low for window treatments and cam up with nothing.
In my mind that means, come up with my own solution.
So I did. I cam up with this easy to make solution for under $50. Much better than the $400 alternative.
Here is my supply list for this project.
2 1/4 inch dowels
wooden dowel knobs
paint color of choice
command strip wire hooks (Doors)
(I used the calendar kind with the swivel hook.)
skinny nose hooks (Window hooks)
small curtain rods
I started with picking out my fabric. We are fortunate enough to have a Home Fabrics in town for amazing fabric prices. I picked up this spa blue damask there for under $10 a yard.
I also wanted to darken my room so I added black out fabric to back my panels.
For all my panels I just cut straight panels right down the middle of the fabric. I used 45 wide decorator fabric and and lined it with black out fabric. I wrapped the main fabric around to the back and stitched it down. I made a rod pocked at each end to fit my dowel rod.
For my small windows I used command hooks for calendars. One on each side and an extendable curtain rod I found at Big Lots. They were the smallest I could find.
