How To  Paint Curtains

I recently transformed a room with these painted curtains.

THE CURTAINS ARE AN OPTICAL ILLUSION

The curtains in the room pull close and create an optical illusion in the space. They match the stripes on the wall.

DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN PAINT CURTAINS?

Yes! It's so easy to paint curtains. The secret is purchasing the right curtains and deciding on a pattern that you want to paint.

CHOOSE YOUR PATTERN

You can stencil the curtains or paint polka dots. I decided to paint stripes to match the walls

SUCH AN AFFORDABLE OPTION

Painting curtains is such an affordable option for the windows in any room. You can match the curtains to your decor without spending a lot of money.

TAPE CURTAIN DOWN 

To get the curtains ready to paint, you want to spread them out on a flat surface and tape them down to prepare to paint.

TAPE OFF STRIPES

Using painter's tape, mark off stripes on the curtain. Alternate between larger and smaller stripes.

Now your curtains are ready to paint. Using a roller and a paintbrush, paint between the edges of the tape.

HANG YOUR CURTAINS IN THE ROOM

Now your curtains are ready to hang. I just clipped them onto gold curtain clips. Here's how they looked when I was finished. Happy decorating!
