Are you experiencing the cold weather like we are?
It was a bit of a dreary day yesterday but later this week it should be feeling more like springtime.
I can't wait...it will be nice to have a good change in the weather soon.
Last week I completed a project that didn't take up too much time at all.
I spent one evening working on some curtains.
A few months ago I purchased a plain white full sheet and then cut it in half to make curtains.
They looked pretty good hanging up in our family room, but I wanted to add a bit more color and drama to them. I was missing my chevron print a little bit in there so I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I took the curtains down, laid them side-by-side and got out some left-over Sherwin Williams Porpoise paint. I love this color...it's a rich gray with tones of brown and I love that combination!
I spied some beautifully painted chevron curtains over on Kristen's blog and knew that was the look I should go for.
I decided not to measure like she did...
in fact, I just eyeballed the whole things pretty much and it turned out great!
You may or may not want to do that if you try this project. ;)
It was just easier for me to do it this way.
Here are some different angles for you:
I love how they turned out!
They work well with our vintage painted dresser, our shoe storage area, and the pops of navy- as seen in the navy armchair above. (which was painted by the way!).
Oh, and I happen to think that the wooden picture next to the curtains stands out a little bit more now (in a good way of course)!
Such a simple and quick change to add a little of something extra to the room.
Have you ever tried your hand at painting curtains? Would you?
Thanks for stopping by!
