Sheer Curtains Across a Wall

Sheer Curtains Across a Wall

John and Ro's home (shown above) is full of great small space solutions, but one that's made a deep impression on us is their wall-to-wall sheer curtain. Hung across a set of standard living room windows, it visually expands their apartment and softens the hard edges of a boxy layout. This is a surprisingly simple project to pull off...

All it takes is a tension wire, turnbuckles and (this is the part that can be hard to find) a lot of sheer fabric. Maxwell wrote a great set of step by step instructions for hanging wall-to-wall curtains, and if you're on a budget, Sarah Rae offers some good advice for crafting big, cheap curtains right here.
