Prices will vary.


I think I got out cheap.

We had someone we know sew up the curtains.

Cost us about $150 for the material - $150 for labor


Our curtains are stationary and do not move....


The fabric we got was something like $9 a yard... I think.


If we wouldn't have known this person, we probably would

have hired a seamstress.. which would have been big bucks probably.

I was on a very tight budget, and I used solid color bedsheets from WALMART for about 4 bucks each (purple).

How did you get the curtains to lay like that on the top? Very dramatic looking. My wife doens't want curtains, but I think they add a touch of cinema feel to the room.

theaterdrapery.com....add the www at the front yourself since I don't have 5 posts yet.


Check out the used section, it is updated once a month I think but call for availability. They will also make you some to your specifications. Friendly, nice people too...

Ron -


The 'swoopies' as we call them... are all individual pieces

that are stapled to a 1"x4" piece of wood on top.

So, there were 9 individual pieces that we had to staple to the

board. (including the side pieces)


The 1x4 board sits about 1" down from the top of the ceiling and is held

to the wall by L brackets - convieniently tucked away under the swoopies.


I dont know how the swoopies were made to bunch together, but I know we bought a pattern for our seamstress to use for the curtain at a local fabric store.


Hope that helps..

Luckily my wife wanted curtains, and was pretty easy going about most of the project. There were a few 'battles' along the way, but all in the past.
