DIY Painted Curtains

DIY, Projects

  1. Brittany says:

    Looks great! Question, and I’m thinking it might not matter because the paint will soak through a little to the other side, but did you hang them with the painted side out or in?

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Brittany! I hung them paint side out. The paint does soak through a little bit on the back side, but not for a full pattern. I hope that helps! 🙂

  2. They look fabulous. They look like they are an irridescent design. Amazing.

    Hi Shayna,
    I love the simplicity of everything that you make. I’ve been ‘following’ you for quite a while and have thoroughly enjoyed watching the transformations!
    I have a question about the paint color in your bedroom. What color and brand is it?


    • Shayna says:

      Thank you so much! So happy to have you as a reader! 🙂 Our bedroom is painted Hazy Skies by Benjamin Moore in satin. Hope that helps! 🙂

  4. Lauren says:

    Wow! I love how the light streams through the pattern. I’m so excited to see what you do in here! I’ve been highly anticipating it since I started following you two years ago. That bed is gorgeous! Can’t wait to see what you’ll be asking for for your birthday. I wish I could play that card right now. 😉

    They look amazing. I stenciled the curtains in my Great Room, and it was only 4 panels. I know what you mean about your back bothering you. It is pretty time consuming, but worth it. I got my Ballard inspired panels at a fraction of the cost.

  6. Peg says:

    love them! never would have thought to paint curtain panels.

  7. Mari says:

    They look great! I love your ideas. I also really like the quilt (blue or gray) on the bed. May I ask where you got that?

  8. Deb says:

    Wow great job! You really took drop cloth curtains to the next level!!!
    I love the gold and the pattern. I have white Ikea curtain in my room and have been contemplating stenciling them…but this may just be the tutorial that is going to kick my butt to do it!

    Love these curtains. Curious about your pillowcases — they look so comfy. Are they cotton? May I ask if you made them or if you purchased them. Love all your projects — you have great taste and always make it doable for the rest of us. Thanks for taking the time to share all these wonderful projects and to answer our questions.

  10. These are beautiful Shayna, thanks for giving me a great idea for my bedroom. Happy 4th. Sincerely, Diena

    So, you’ll not be able to wash these curtains because they’ll shrink? Then how will you clean them? Just curious. Thanks

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Rebecca! I can wash these curtains, but will not be able to dry them. I rarely wash my curtains, but vacuum them and spot clean instead. I hope this helps.

  12. Kelsie says:

    Okay, these look amazing! So question- I am trying to get some sort of pale green curtains for our dining room. Do you think I could do something similar with a pale green fabric and then pain that is just a touch darker? I’m wanting a pattern, but can’t find pretty patterned curtains in a sage color that don’t break the bank.

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you so much, Kelsie! I do think you could do the same thing and have great results! Good luck! 😀

  13. Malissa says:

    Love this look – its very subtle and the stencil design is fabulous!! I made drop cloth curtains for our living room and they look great but lacked “something”. THIS IS IT! Thank you for much for the picture heavy tutorial! I’m a visual learner!! 😉
