In 2007, God blessed us with a baby girl, Lilly. In 2008, he called her home. Grief drove us to find new passions and that is when we starting curating space and creating custom pieces. God has blessed us with new life again, Mia and Tripp. This is our journey through this fallen, but beautiful world.
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!
