(plain walls, plain curtains, plain duvet, plain shams = boring!)
so when i saw this project and these striking curtains, my heart skipped a beat.
it reminded me of jenny's curtain's that i drooled over.
all you need for this project is your plain jane curtains, fabric paint, paint tape, tape measurer, and a sponge brush.
i decided to do 7" stripes after measuring my curtains and doing a little math. i taped off my 7 inches and painted alternate colored stripes.
i went with anita's all purpose craft paint from hobby lobby. i actually ran out late saturday night and since hobby lobby is closed on sundays i'm out of luck on finishing this project today (i discovered this only after searching every other craft store in the kansas city metro area).
here is the (half-way) finished result ...
old curtains on the left ... transformed curtains on the right. now, i think that throw pillow definitely has to be replaced (i have another fabric in mind that i think will be just perfect).
now imagine a long pillow covered in this rich ikat fabric ...
the fabric is more than i wanted to spend but i have searched high and low and nothing calls my name like this one. it will be my splurge of the room.
don't you just love it when things start to come together? i can hardly wait!
