I had two pair of those really long sheer panels (from the 90’s) that I have used in several bedrooms. I cut each panel in half and hemmed them. I actually used the original hem as a pocket for the rod because I had just enough fabric for the length I wanted.
The side of the patio where the picnic table sits has a backdrop of ferns (and hibiscus).
Once while staying at a B&B (Lovelace Manor in Lancaster, PA) we admired the huge
field of ferns they had growing.
We were happy to accept a boxful to take home to our own garden!
