You'll Also Need

  •   Washing Machine

Step By Step

  1. I bought plain Ikea (bomull) curtains. These are curtains and sheers combined.

  2. I cut the sheers from the curtains.

  3. I washing machine dyed the curtains leaving the sheers white.

  4. The curtains soaked over night in the washing machine in a dye bath of dark brown liquid dye.

  5. I added plastic kam snaps to the curtains (and sheers) so that the sheers could be snapped back in place.

  6. I snapped the sheers to the curtains and rehung the curtains.

  7. Done.
