DIY Window Treatments for the Budget Conscious

Each of these DIY window treatments are unique and oh so pretty.  They prove that with a bit of ingenuity and creativity you can make your own custom window treatments at a fraction of the cost of custom draperies.

A word a caution, I doubt you can read this post without wanting at least one of these amazing ideas.   There is a style for everyone, and so much inspiration.

Feminine DIY Curtains

This is such a simple idea.  Hang some pretty purchased sheers onto a round shower curtain.   How easy is that and the effect is so soft and flowing.   The perfect addition to our guest room.  What room would you put it in?

Farmhouse Shelf Window Treatment

This post is from my blog, it takes almost no carpentry skills so I was able to put it together myself.  It is a perfect way to add a little decor space and farmhouse flare to a small bedroom.

Farmhouse Shutters

The farmhouse sink is an obviously beautiful farmhouse decor, but not everyone can afford it, or like me don’t want to totally commit to the farmhouse style in an urban setting.  Unlike a permanent renovation these shutters will add some adorable farmhouse flare without a huge expense or permanent commitment.  These shutters are made from recycled Ikea wood slats, pretty and refurbished.  So well done.

Scalloped Cornice Window Treatment

Cornices are really striking, but they can be daunting to try and make.  This simple scalloped cornice tutorial shows you how.   This cornice would add an elegant chic mood to a room, but I think it would be fun in gingham or country fabric as a farmhouse element. Do you agree?

Industrial Curtain Rod Window Treatment

These rods are definitely the most heavy duty rods I have ever seen.  They are so masculine and rugged.  There is a local seller here who makes something very similar to this post and when I saw them in person I was stunned at how beautiful they are.  Especially when the rods were paired with industrial lighting.  This is a very stylish look.

Privacy Screen Window Treatment

Our neighbourhood  is a typical new suburban neighbourhood with two storey homes spaced about ten feet apart.  Privacy is definitely a concern, our master bathroom has a large window over the soaker tub that faces the street.  The window is currently covered with heavy blinds that cost $100.  Don’t you think this DIY solution would be prettier, less expensive and much more unique?

Iron Bracket Window Treatment

The title Iron Bracket doesn’t inspire thoughts about a very chic elegant feminine window treatment does it?  But that is exactly what the Chateau Chic blog has created. Not sure what category you could fit this window treatment into; maybe feminine or farmhouse.  I am going to categorize it into the I want this category.  The hardest part of this treatment is keeping a lookout for fantastic large brackets.

DIY Roman Shades from Mini Blinds

No round up of window treatments would be complete without a DIY roman shade tutorial.  There are several examples online of this method but I found this post to be very thorough in describing the process, the tutorial is very well done.

These DIY window treatments have a few things in common.  Each post comes with a tutorial, they are easy to do, pretty, stylish and unique.  Personally I much prefer them to the custom drapery look, they have much more individuality.

At the beginning of the post I said everyone would find at least one project they would have to try in their home.  Please comment and let me know which are you favorites.  I will will respond letting you know mine.

  1. These are really neat ideas. I want a fresh set for my office. But first I need to really give the sliding door a good cleaning. I had the pair I have no draping on the floor, but it really does not do well when it is the doorway to the yard.

    1. These ideas are really different, they show you can think out of the box and solve an issue. The one for the bathroom is perfect for this house and the brackets would be so pretty on our main floor.

      Thanks for commenting Pam, let me know what you end up doing with your office,

    1. Thanks Michelle. There are a two ideas in this post that I want to try, the privacy screen those pretty rod iron cornices. Loved all these ideas so much better than drapes. Thanks for commenting.
