I Love This Idea!! (DIY Art and Better Curtains for a Lot Less Money)

By Southshoredecoratingblog
I was in Marshall's today looking for silk or faux silk scarves to frame for my foyer, and boy did I hit pay dirt!  I found these four scarves (the top green one I got on ebay and I will use it somewhere else):

Here are cropped closeups of them together. It's hard to picture, but they will look so much better ironed and framed. I will probably use 3 of these 4, but I'm not sure which three yet:

I hope it looks as good as I am picturing, which is something like these inspiration photos:

Next, I walked by the tablecloths and decided to take a look. I don't usually buy them, so I wasn't that familiar with sizes. It turns out a lot of them are 60" x 84". Well, guess what else is 84" long? Most curtains. Hmmmm.....

Most of them are bolder than I would ever do on a window, but you could cut them and frame them or use them as a shower curtain. Even the 84" lengths are about 25% wider than a standard curtain, which is nice, too.   
I love this for a shower curtain:

And these colorful ones for shower or window curtains, especially for kids' rooms:

But some were perfect for neutral room windows, too.  Like these Calvin Klein ones - I opened that back and I swear it is thicker and nicer than most store bought curtains, and sooo much less money:

Have any of you ever framed scarves or used tablecloths as curtains? It sounds so tacky, but they were really nice and I'd love to try it.
