I had a plain white pair of $10 IKEA curtains hanging in my dining room. Very boring, especially with all of the other white in the room. I decided to jazz them up with a little green and gold paint!
I was going for an Ikat feel but my lines are too crisp for that. They are definitely imperfect and I love that. Not too bad for my first time painting on fabric. I used a sample pot of green that I got with a free coupon from Lowe’s and some gold Decoart craft paint from Jo-Ann’s .
I just taped off a design. I wasn’t too perfect with it, I just wanted something easy and imperfect. Then I used a small paint brush to paint the fabric. I did add a fabric medium to the paint so that the curtains wouldn’t be too stiff. After 24 hours I heat set the paint so that the curtains would be fully washable.
This is a super easy and cheap way to make boring curtains fabulous! Not bad for a buck fifty, since I already had the curtains, the green paint was free and I paid $1.50 for the gold paint Decorating your home does NOT have to be expensive. Use what ya got! Anyone can pull this off! I can’t wait to try it again. The dining room is really coming along and I like the direction it’s headed in. It’s different than what I set out for but I like for a room to evolve slowly
Be sure to Pin this for later and follow me on Pinterest if you haven’t already! I’m so glad it’s FRIDAY! Woot Woot! What do you have planned for the weekend? I think we’re just doing yard work and hanging out at home. I have a few DIY’s up my sleeve too
