Our loft need a large expanse of curtains, over 40' worth to be exact. All of the store bought curtain rods and mounting solutions seemed extra pricey and would more than triple what the cost of our fabric hard been. So, we turned our attention to the under appreciated cafe clip. Click through for details...

Cafe clips can be found at most local big box and hardware stores. We picked ours up at K-Mart for $2.54 for a pack of 14. All they require is a simple pinch to open and their claw holds tight to whatever fabric you put between it. At first we were worried that they would be too shiny, but once all was said and done, they look ultra modern and chic! (Stay tuned for a full tutorial on Monday!)

Had we used traditional curtain rods our cost for hanging 40+ feet worth of fabric would have been in the hundreds of dollars. Knowing we could accomplish the same look for less feels great!
