Originally used for feed bags and wrapping tree roots, burlap has become a popular and economic way to add texture to a room. Burlap is available in a variety of colors and sizes, making it an option regardless of your style.
With a simple hem on all four sides, burlap panels can be hung with drapery clips to any existing rod. These panels offer some privacy while allowing light to be filtered through the nubby fabric, adding interest and texture to the room.
Roman shades are easy to make and add a tailored look to windows. Functional and beautiful, shades provide privacy while highlighting the beauty of woodwork around windows.
If texture around the window is desired but privacy is not needed, consider installing a valance. This option offers the texture and interest of a window treatment, while allowing an unobstructed window view.
Panels and Roman shades can be embellished with accent fabric, ribbons or stencils, and paint to add personal style to window dressings.
To add privacy to any burlap window treatment, black-out drapery lining can be used.
