Funky Country Tab Top Curtains. I used old leather belts as the tab top and gingham tablecloths with grommet holes to attach them to.
My daughters mixed media artwork hangs in the center of the curtains.
Please dont look too closely...I guess I should have dusted before I took this picture!

With the price of draperies these days I had to come up with an inexpensive alternative. I have been collecting old leather belts with interesting buckles and decided to use them as "Tab Tops" I purchased inexpensive gingham tablecloths and put grommet holes in the top. I then used very large metal envelope "thingys" (sorry I don't know what they're called) You know what I mean though, the metal clips that open up when you put them through a hole in a manilla envelope. Well, Voila!!! there you have it!
