Have you search high and low for the perfect thing you have in mind and you just can't find it? Isn't that SO frustrating?!? Well that is what happened when I was looking for curtains for a recent design project. Remember the world travel office design?
I wanted orange and white curtain panels. Not too feminine, not too busy, maybe graphic. I wanted a good orange, not like a circus orange. So guess what I did? I just made them!
I painted 10" stripes on canvas ikea curtains and I think they turned out great. It was a pretty quick project and I used this tutorial to help me. I did not use a fabric medium as she suggested, and I had some spots that did not take the paint well enough in the sun. I wonder if it would have helped and save me the touch up step??? Not sure though...
Here are few process pictures...the green frog tape worked like a dream!
