I knew I wanted something with a little interest and color on our windows, but I wasn't ready to introduce another pattern in the tune of full length curtains. So I picked up some white cotton curtains and decided to paint them. When trying to determine what to paint on the curtains, I remembered this blog post and loved the random sized stripes she had painted on her walls. That was it, that was just the inspiration I needed.
The process didn't go quite as smoothly as I had hoped. The plan was to use the painters tape I had on hand, tape off some stripes, use a foam brush to pain the stripes and hopefully it'd take less than an hour. Boy was I wrong - the tape didn't stick to the cotton - so 5 hours later, I had completed the hand painted, straight stripes across the bottom of each panel. Good thing I love how they turned out!
Please excuse the poor quality cell phone picture, taken at night. The colors aren't exactly accurate, either.
I think I could have gone a bit wider/bolder with the stripes, but I still love them the way they are.
The master bedroom is getting closer and closer to being complete:
- get large floor mirror: coming soon, hopefully I get to pick it up this week!
- paint and maybe recover the chair
- paint the side table by the chair
- paint the dresser
- window coverings (2 parts)
- paint the trim white
Since this post was all about paint, any suggestions on what colors to paint the chair and small side table?
