I'm going for a more contemporary look this time. So, I drag my husband to the fabric stores to find some curtains. While in store checking on the curtains, I got so baffled by the prices! In my mind was the three figured number for just two window curtains? Hubby keep explaining that curtains are priced that way, well OK, I could turn off my "less" switch this time and go ahead and buy curtains, the thing was, all the curtain design/prints were not EXACTLY what I pictured in mind that I want to have. Either the prints are too small or wrong color. So guess what?....we ended up not buying any from that store and two more stores we checked and still came home empty handed.
Couple days later, I went back to one of the fabric store and bought me 6 yards of plain white fabric (poly/rayon),craft knife, textile paint, stencil sheet and spray adhesive. I am making my own stenciled curtain!
Here's how I did it.
I drew the swirl pattern on a white paper
After sewing the seams and .....VIOLA! the right curtain at last!
I love the sienna bronze rod and rings exposed, I think it give contemporary look that I was craving for.
