Home Accessories: Dish Towels as Curtains

Always a good idea: linen tea towels serving as curtains. They look natural and airy, and we love decorating with things we already own. Here’s a roundup of some recently admired tea towel installations.

Above: For the less motivated among us; an instant curtain idea (via photographer Simon Brown) involving an impromptu curtain rod, a square of linen (doesn’t even need to be hemmed), and a pack of wooden clothespins.

Here’s another take on light and airy curtains: Walls, Windows & Floors: Jewel-Toned Voile Curtains at Remodelista.

Great Idea!! I can't wait to try! Plus tea towels can often be made of quite thick, durable fabric so this is great for winter - cuts out the cold while keeps the light coming in!! =)
