Cheap furring strips

I followed the plans for the Kids Tent / Reading Nook but used a 9'x12' painter's drop cloth canvas instead of curtain panels. (I made 3 tents so I cut this into thirds...)

To make it even more fun, I painted stripes on the canvas by mixing regular latex paint (Valspar in Orange Crush, Twist of Lime, Dive In, and Cheery on Top) 2-to-1 with a textile medium.
