Burlap love {diy curtains}
I love re-purposing in case you have not noticed.
{Burlap diy curtains/valances}

These burlap rice bags have gone a super long way in my house. {free}  I have just a few pieces left, and I decided I would make a burlap valance for the laundry room.

{Don't peek around here yet},

 I have not shown you the laundry room's full reveal! Just look at the curtains...FOCUS!
I cut the bag in half, and just hot glued the trim across, leaving a small little opening to be able to fit my rod in between.

Added a little twine and some clothes pins.
Nothing fancy by no means, but it does look cute, free and adds a little texture and interest to a plain door window.

This was the sack I used, and reversed it.  
There may be a little writing peeking outside the window..and I am sure the neighbors are thinking what the heck is that?

Won't be the first time they go by and shake their heads,and I am sure it will not be the last time.
Have a great day everyone! 
Don't forget to go on up and take the  Green works survey, if you have not already.

Ha Ha! My neighbor's are always scratching their heads. It started over 25 years ago when we painted our home a grey~beige. There was much ado...but a few knock offs popped up in the blocks around the corners.
Your valance is wonderful!

That is too cute. The jute and clothespins really make it!! There is no fear of my neighbors thinking I'm nuts because they already do! Actually, quite literally, within a week of painting my kitchen cabinets (the FIRST TIME...we had a flood and before all the doors were put back on, they went for a swim in our basement, and had to be redone!), I met my neighbor across the street, and when I told him what I had done, he said, "You're nuts!", or was it "You're crazy!"?, hmmm...can't remember which phrase, but who's kidding who, they both mean the same thing, lol!

I have a rice bag on my desk now. I think mine might become a pillow, because I can sew so well (NOT!).

You're neighbors are probably jealous.

Such a cute and pretty idea! I love the clothes pins! Sorry, I snooped also! Love the blue color on the walls! Can't wait to see your whole laundry room! Who cares about the neighbors! One of mine still has her Christmas tree on her window with the lights on every night! Now, that's something to shake your head about! Somebody needs to tell her tomorrow is March 1st! LOL

That turned out really cute in there. Of course, I was peeking around at the rest of the room too. The color of the burlap looks pretty against your wall color.

I was very good and didn't peek.
I do think it's a great idea, and I like the writing showing from the other side. It gives it character!

It's good to keep those neighbors guessing isn't it? At least your life isn't boring... RIGHT! Have a great week & enjoy your new curtains.

I actually like the writing on the burlap. That's a great look.
That embellishment looks like it's been there forever. Great!

Have you ever thought about sending a video into the Nate Berkus show for the segment, "House Proud"?
You should do it!!

I made similar curtains for a place we rented about 20 years ago, out of burlap coffee bean bags. The company no longer is around sadly, or I'de make some again now that you have reminded me how cool they look. The burlap was quite a bit heavier then the rice bags. I used hot glue to make the hems and rod pockets. The little house had been a camp turned into a home, with pine walls and ceiling beams so the burlap curtains went very well in the windows that covered the whole front wall of the place. Gee, now I miss that cozy little place. Thanks for posting your idea. Brings back many good memories.
