It’s week 3 of the $100 Room Challenge, and today we’re talking about finding cheap curtains.
As you may remember from week one, our curtains are currently sitting 6 inches off the ground (a little washing mishap); not only that, they do not match the direction this space is going.
When I was painting the dining room, I took the curtains down, and my husband loved the openness, but I quickly reminded him that our neighbors probably have no desire to watch our family through the window each evening, so we needed to replace them. Enter online shopping.
I’m not gonna lie; I am surprised at how many budget-friendly options there are when it comes to curtains, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites. (Feel free to click on the image for more details 🙂 )
(Remember to measure the length of the curtains you need for your space as some of the options listed may not suit your space.)

I can’t believe how cool and affordable these curtains are! I bought some from Walmart before and they were great! I was so sorry to hear about your friend. Thinking of you, and their family.
I really do love the Better Homes and Gardens collection at Walmart. Affordable and gorgeous 🙂

Oooh, so many good options for curtains. I like slide 2 with the stripes. Or slide 9, the plain white ones. So pretty. Can’t wait to see the whole room next week!
Those bold stripes are a popular choice. I love them too, I was just worried the gray might now match the bluish gray paint color… ended up finding some at IKEA (all white), and both panels were just $14.99. Perfect for this $100 Room Challenge 🙂
All very nice choices! I love the stripes, but really all of them would work well!
I think those bold stripes are a definite favorite. I ended up finding some at IKEA for super cheap, so it was perfect for this low-budget challenge 🙂
I love simple plain white curtains. Boring I know! I’m leaning toward 8-10. I think every pair of curtains in our home is from Ikea because of the extended lengths and amazing prices. And a great selection of plain white. 🙂 Big reveal next week – woo hoo! Can’t wait to see your room!
I found some at IKEA!!! … and they’re white (with a little white pattern). They are nice and long, and they actually say that when washed they’ll shrink by 4% (so hopefully no more curtains hanging 6 inches off the ground 🙂 ) Gotta love IKEA!

I love the bold stripes and almost went with them for our mudroom! Can’t wait to see what you decide on!
Seems those bold stripes are a winner! I decided on some from IKEA, but I’m thinking I might need to find a spot for those striped curtains somewhere in my house 🙂

Sorry to hear about your friend. It’s always hard to lose someone we care about. And all of the curtains are pretty. I’m sure whichever one you choose will look great in your room!
Thanks Angie! I ended up going with none of the curtains I found (of course). Found the perfect fit at IKEA 🙂

Walmart had come along way, I found my sheets there and they were half the price of ones I saw in bed and beyond. The curtains choices are really nice and they look like the ones in country curtains.
I think the Better Homes and Gardens brand at Walmart always has such nice stuff, and at a good price 🙂

I love the bold stripes, too, but they’re all so pretty and paint color does help you narrow it down. Good luck on your choice. Woot!!
Once again, so sorry for the loss of your friend. Prayers for you all as you grieve.
Thank you for the prayers 🙂 Much appreciated. As for the curtains, I love so many of them. Out to shop curtains today, so fingers crossed that I’ll find the perfect ones.
Such great choices – I am excited to see your room!
Thanks Carrie! I cannot wait for next week when I can see what everyone did with their space 🙂
I really like the stripes and the last curtain and I’m so sorry about your friend Erin. xoxo
I like both of those as well. Hoping to head out today while the kiddos are at school and buy what I need 🙂
Brittany Goldwyn says
Again, sorry for your loss 🙁 But on a happier note, Ikea has always been my go-to for cheap curtains!
I actually found some at IKEA that I think I love! Headed there tomorrow hopefully… and two panels for $14.99?! YAY!!!
Jeanie Emmert says
Erin! Thanks for the doing the legwork for me on curtains. I just ordered two of the Ironwork Curtain panels from Walmart for my makeover ; ) I can’t wait to see which ones you pick!
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your friend. My thought and prayers go out to you and your husband.
When I read that you were looking for curtains, I was like, “Yep. Me too.” So glad you found something that will work in your space! Love that.
Thank you also for your thoughts and prayers. Much appreciated.

So sorry for your loss!
I personally love #11!
Thank you Ashley… #11 is one of my favorites as well. I think I found a similar version at IKEA for even cheaper. Hopefully I can get there this week to check them out 🙂
Zografia | Bisozozo says
The last one, #11. I did not have to think it twice once i saw them.
I know. I love 11 too 🙂
Again, so sorry about your loss.
You have some really good options there. Can’t wait to see what you pick
Thanks Deborah! Hoping to get the curtains up before the weekend.

I’m a fan of bold stripes, so I’d go with those. Sorry to hear about your friend – losing anyone is tough, but especially when it’s unexpected. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband.
Thanks Eliesa! I love the bold stripes too, just not totally sure the gray will match the paint. Planning a little curtain shopping this week (after all my kiddos recover from some little stomach virus… yuck).
You’ve found some really pretty budget friendly options for drapes. I personally like 4 and 6 and they are pretty similar but I’m sure you will pick the best one to suit the room.
Have a great week!
Thanks for your thoughts. I love, love, love the grays, just gotta make sure they match the walls, cuz I have no plans to repaint 🙂
