If you checked in on Friday you already know
that our next round of Pinspired & Rewired has begun.

This month the theme is stencils!

My pinspiration was from
A Little of This, A Little of That.

I don’t know why but I was so nervous about stenciling!
Buuut I really couldn’t believe how easy it was! 
Seriously, I don’t know what took me so long
to jump on the stenciling bandwagon! Winking smile


I used the Turkish Tulip stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils.
{They are the sponsors for this month,
& they are offering some awesome prizes!}
I’m slowly redoing our master bedroom,
& I wanted to change out my old IKEA curtains.
Buuuuuut instead of buying new curtains
I just stenciled my old ones & got a whole new look for less!  Yay!

stencil step one 

I did this in the garage so I could lay out my curtain as flat as possible.
I put a plastic drop cloth underneath just incase the paint bled through.
Then I just laid my stencil down & got to painting.
FYI: Never mind the blue painters tape!
Taping it down didn’t really make a difference. You’ll be fine without it. 
This was a super quick project.  I got done in ONE naptime!  Wahoo! Smile

stencil curtain clips

I found these curtain clips at Walmart
I cut the loops off the top of my curtains,
& then I just used the clips to hang them up.

I really, really love how it turned out!
My hubby even thought I bought new curtains! Smile

  1. They look great! Ok, you said it was easy enough I may actually get brave enough to try it! What kind of paint do you suggest?

  2. I have been shying away from stenciling too fearing it would be really difficult. Seeing all these great projects related to Pinspired and Rewired may be enough to get rid of my fears!
    Your curtains looks really great!

  3. I just used the same paint that my walls are it was a semi gloss acrylic latex paint from Home Depot. I'm sure you could used fabric paint with similar results. :)

  4. I'm very tempted to try this on my dining room curtains. I'm sure my hubby would look at me like i'm crazy though. haha... It's either try something like this or new curtains because i'm really tired of looking at the ones I have.

  5. Amazing...I am stenciling my new curtains that I sewed right now! :) Yours turned out great. I'll send you a link when I post about it!

  6. Very nice, Ginger! I need to do this on my bedroom curtains!

  7. Beautifully done! I need to do this at my house!
