Lace-Trimmed Curtain Panels

Katie from Upcycled Treasures has been working on a master bedroom makeover and fell in love with lace-trimmed curtains from Anthropologie. Lace-trimmed curtains that cost almost $200 per panel! Ouch! Katie set out on a mission to get the same look for less. However, when her search for affordable lace trim came up dry, Katie realized she still had lace table runners left over from her wedding reception. Katie “dyed” the runners with a mixture of paint and fabric medium and then sewed them onto the edge of inexpensive grommet curtains. I love that Katie’s pretty panels have a little sentimentality behind them. So lovely!


Katie was inspired by the Ombre Lace Curtains from Anthropologie.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing Beckie, I LOVE our new curtains!

    • They look lovely, Katie! And I just adore the fact that you were able to repurpose the runners from your wedding. It just makes them all the sweeter. :-)
