Just a few months ago, I moved into a new house. It has been so fun to try and be truly creative with decor for each of the rooms. One thing that I fell in love with when I first walked into the home were the huge oversized windows. I knew that they would be a great source of natural lighting in the studio and bedroom, but I didn’t realize just how hard it would be to find curtains that I liked to cover them during the day. After thinking a couple of days, I finally decided to use my curtains from the old house, but change them up just a bit.
I’ve always been such a lover of song lyrics, so I decided this was my perfect opportunity to put a few in my room. I chose to paint the lyrics to “I Can See Clearly Now” because of the optimistic words that fill the song; having those lyrics be the words that fill my room when the sun shines through excites me!
The cost of supplies is extremely less than $15, such an inexpensive makeover!
Because I used a sponge brush instead of a paint brush, my brush strokes tended to stay rather large and created a big text across my curtains. If you wish to have a much smaller sized font, I would suggest using a very fine-tipped paintbrush. I chose to do only two coats of paint to create a more of a graffitied look to my curtains. The more coats you paint, the smaller amount of light that will show through the painted letters which will create a more solid looking letter.
I think my favorite thing about the curtains is that during the day, the paint seems to be a rich grass green because of the lighting, and then at night, the color changes to a sea foam green. Funny how light changes things, huh?
I hope you give these curtains a try & they bring you a room full of happiness. My dog Rubie seems to like them a lot, too. 🙂
