Description: Samantha of Crafty Texas Girls did a ‘make-over’ on her husband’s office with one of the biggest changes being the drapery. Out naked window, bold black and white striped curtains.Yes, you could probably sew stripes onto the curtain but she chose to paint instead and the results are impressive.
Here’s what you need to create your own painted curtains: – Ritva panels ($30 each) -curtain panels -tape measure -pencil -drop cloth -paint and paint brushes
Quite a bit of math and planning goes into it. The stripes are 4.5 inches wide each. Measure and make a tick mark on each side. Then use a straight edge to connect them with a line.
The whole thing took about 4 hours to paint and Samantha hung them using her 3 Curtain Rules.(Hang them high, have them touch the ground, put them wide on the outside of the window).
Sometimes painting just seems more fun that sewing!
