Curtains Concept - Target & Ikea

Published date: September 27, 2012

We wanted a simple, clean look for our curtains and found this "cable" system at IKEA. Stainless bullets that attach to liner with a #8x1/2" screw. Cables are installed through the side of bullets instead of as designed through the end. Cables lock with little set screw sleeves. We bought cloth napkins at Target for the curtains and my talented wife cut and hemmed as needed, and sewed on some ties. We also removed the wood head door and hung a curtain (same IKEA system plus a custom bracket) made from a matching tablecloth. Oh, and two full sized napkins were used for the overhead windows up front, secured with Velcro dots. Looks great to us, and sure beats blue tape and paper towels for curtains!
