Well…after 9 long months of planning, hard work and a long day of labor we are happy to announce…
there are curtains up in the Spiehs’ living room
We started with a geometric pattern that I saw online. I took this pattern and created a large stencil with stencil paper.
I bought four plain white curtain panels from Target. I did this because I wanted the grommets already in the fabric. Grommets are a pain to install and I figured that this project was already going to be hard enough.
Next I picked my paint color. I used a flat latex paint.
Using a spray adhesive, we positioned the stencil on the curtain and rolled on the paint with a foam roller.
And we did this over and over and over and….
about four hours and four blisters later we had covered four panels of curtains!
This was a pretty gutsy project but we did it. Key word there WE. This is definitely a two-man job.
I am so happy with how they turned out. My living room finally looks like a living room…well worth the wait.
We did it!
