Painted Curtains!

It's time for my true heritage to shine through... guess how much these curtains cost me! Oh bah, my Mennonite family will be proud. Did you guess? ... and I don't Derek guess. (Side note= Derek is my brother, and whenever I think I found a good deal on something I would ask him to guess the price, he always guesses a ridiculously low price just to wipe the proud smile of my face) Answer: 4 dollars! All I had to buy was a 4$ flat sheet from the thrift store.


I first cut it in two then sewed it along the cut and a seem at the top for the curtain rod to fit through. Next I penciled on a stencil, then I painted it on. Super easy. My only regret is that I should have bought fabric medium to add to the latex paint I used. (I used the same paint as on the dresser) Honestly, I was too lazy to go to the store and too excited to start painting. ... yes, I was excited and lazy at the same time.... it happens. But all in all, totally pumped at how they turned out!
