Cover a Wall for Extra Coziness

Wall-to-wall draperies are great for adding dimension, color and can cover a multitude of sins. If you’ve got uneven window placement or ugly, beat-up walls try this look. In this space the wall of curtains acts as a visual headboard and unifies the look of the room.

Make a Wall Hanging

Like wall-to-wall curtains, a wall hanging can conceal a wall with lots of bumps and bruises. Just grab a large curtain panel, lay it flat, and tack it to the wall with nails or push pins.
