How To: Create Modern Window Coverings With Grommets

We're fans of window coverings that are configurable in multiple ways. Sometimes we open only the lower half when its really bright out, other times we like to leave the bottom covered so that neighbors can't see in. Shades and curtains don't give us the choice of top-down or bottom-up. That's why we love this simply designed solution...

To make these curtains, you just use a grommet tool to punch grommets in the corners and centers of hemmed fabric, measured to fit your window. We'd go a step further and add another two grommets (here) in the middle. This way the curtain could also be hung "folded over", leaving the bottom covered for privacy. Its a great solution for certain rooms like the bathroom or bedroom, where privacy and lighting needs change frequently. And you can choose a washable linen or even a fun pattern!
