DIY Painted Curtains

Recently I was asked to participate in a DIY paint challenge by Wayfair! I was thrilled and couldn’t wait to get started! I knew this would be a lot of fun and I’m so glad I was asked to join in!

DIY Painted Curtains

I literally drew up a million plans for these curtains and doing research on what has been done before. I finally decided to keep it simple and go with the whole less is more motto! I stuck to black and white, since it’s a bold and daring trend! I decided to try cascading polka dots, where they start off light at the top and become heavier as you work your way down.

What you will need:

White curtains 

Black fabric paint

Circle stencil

Stencil brush

What to do:

1. Iron out as many wrinkles in your curtains as possible 2. Tape securely to a hard surface. I used our kitchen floor since the paint would be easy to remove if it seeped through 3. Get your supplies ready to go 4. Place your stencil where you would like your design to begin and secure with tape to keep it from moving 5. Carefully begin dabbing your black paint onto the curtain using your stencil as a guide 6. Work your way to the bottom of the curtain, begin by adding more circles as you approach the bottom. Tip: You can pre plan where the circles go by tracing ahead of time with pencil to give you a bigger picture of the end product.

I’m not going to lie, it was pretty time consuming! But I love the end result! It’s clean, simple and lots of fun! The space seems more playful, but still comes across as sophisticated. These curtains would look good in any room, whether it be the dining room, living room or bedroom! Be sure to head to Wayfair today to see all the other great ideas some other bloggers contributed for this DIY paint challenge! There are so many great options!

    You have such a great eye for pattern–I love how the cascade moves down at an angle! Great use of negative space!

      Thanks Marlene – I feel so flattered :) It was a little stressful at first, but I’m happy with how it turned out!
