Following Are The 5 Ways To Use Old Curtains For Decoration:
1. Make Slipcovers
Use old curtains for making slipcovers. If you have sofa, chairs and loveseat at your home without a cover, you can stitch slipcovers after cutting some old and waste curtains. Use it on the furniture in the drawing room or dining room.
2. Use As Shower Curtains
A shower curtain helps in separating the bathing area from toilet and the rest of the bathroom. Attach plastic shower liners in the bathing area. After that, hang old curtains in the shower area. This is an inexpensive idea for getting some good shower curtains at no cost.
3. Make Drop Cloth
Sometimes, the house needs repairing and reconstruction work. At that time, the house is painted and the carpenter makes wooden structures and furniture. We need a drop cloth placed on the floor so that the paint, dust or wooden pieces don’t fall all around the house. Use old shower curtains for this purpose. They make very good drop cloth.
4. Use As Closet Door
If you have a closet or cupboard with damaged doors, just remove the door by detaching it from the cupboard. Replace it with an old curtain. Fix a rod on the top part and hang the curtains on it. Use white, colored or printed curtains lying waste in your house.
5. Make Artwork
Make artwork with old shower curtains. Take some old curtain that has a nice design printed on it. Cut square pieces from it and make a collage painting with it. Fix the curtain pieces on canvas with the help of glue. Hang the canvas on your wall after framing it.
