DIY Decor: Stenciled Window Treatment Re-do

Plain white curtain
I heart window treatments! I just love how they add pizzazz to boring old windows!!

Most of the windows in our home are decorated, but the window in our Master bath has been screaming for some attention.

I haven't found exactly what I've been looking for, but I decided to repurpose the tie-up window shade from my son's old nursery.

It was the perfect blank canvas-white, crisp & clean.

I used a cheapo stencil ($3 for a pack of 3) from Michael's plus a can of Rustoleum's American Accents paint in Chocolate.

Note to self-it would've been a lot neater had I used paint vs spray paint, but my goal was to make due with what I had...hence the spray paint.

Ta-da...the finished project!

Lots of stenciling and spraying!

Love my newly accessorized window!!
I couldn't be happier with the way this curtain re-do turned out! Sometimes slight imperfections are a good thing!!

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Have you spray painted anything random lately?

Thanks for popping by!

Looks great! Been wanting to try to stencil around a mirror on my wall but I've been afraid to committ to it. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is incredible. You should be very proud of yourself...stenciling on fabric is not easy. I agree that it couldn't have turned out any better. Well done!

Wow, great job! Great idea! I just did my first stencil project last weekend. It was a lot harder than I thought. Now, if I get the courage, I will try this on curtains. Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm your newest follower.

What a great idea! And I was just thinking about throwing out my drab beige curtains. Now I'm thinking a bit of paint, maybe a monogram, and they'll be fresh again. Thanks for the inspiration and for becoming a follower. I'm following you now, as well. :) Hope to see you next week for my link party.

I like the damask print, and I was thinking the other day if I can use spray paint for stenciling so Im not the only crazy one lol question was it hard to clean the stencil from the spray paint later ??

Thanks so much for popping by! The spray paint definitely gets pretty messy! My stencils will never be the same-smile!!

Next time I'll probably just use paint!!
