So, I had the great idea to stencil my living room curtains!
It seemed like a great idea, easy, fun and cheap! Cheap being my favorite word, but it definitely wasn't fun or easy! Ok, maybe a little fun at first and I love the finished product, unfortunately I ended up hand painting it, not using a stencil!
I first found the stencil I wanted online...I don't know if that's considered stealing!? If so I'm really sorry!
I cut out the stencil and got started tracing it with a pencil
Then a marker
This process became a little harder than I expected! Guess that's what I get for reading all the other blogs and seeing how easy they stenciled their curtains and thinking, I can do that! HA!
Take two: Thinking I was smarter than the average bear, I covered my (paper) stencil with tape thinking I could just paint over it! HA
I didn't like how it was coming out...AT ALL!
Take three: I grabbed a bottle of my favorite kid past time...puff paint and got to work!
So glad I didn't give up....
I mixed artificial paint and fabric paint and when it was dry lightly went over it with a warm iron.
Happy Wednesday Loves!!
