10 DIY Curtain Projects–Knock Off Style

Oh, curtains. They can be such a pain in the rear challenge when it comes to decorating.

There are just so many factors to consider – length, weight, material, sheerness, rod style… Take all that and then try to find the color and pattern you want.

That’s where I have found myself time and again turning to DIY projects to get the exact curtains I need and want for my space.

Are you tired of the curtain blues? Here are ten DIY curtain projects to inspire you, and, of course, they are all inspired by high end design!

1. Pom-Pom Trim
