How To Update Vertical Blinds With Stencils


I hated my old vertical blinds in my front window. They were plain, ugly and made my little living room look dated. On the other side, they were perfect for letting the right amount of light in and providing privacy. What's a girl to do with the functional vs. ugly dilemma?
Like any good DIY'er I found a way to make them look awesome for pennies!

They were plain, white and boring before.

I used the large size Morse Code Stencil from Royal Design Studio and two shades of gold stencil creme.

Two colors give plenty of variation. I made some light, some dark and others I varied in color by blending the two paints.

The difference the stenciled blinds made is huge! I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier!

This upgrade was so much less than buying custom window coverings:)

      I had cloth verticals at another house. Sorry no pictures. I bought fabric remnants and used the Heat & Bond Ultra Hold iron-on fabric adhesive. I had a country theme in that house so I made a patchwork design. Looked like a quilt when they were closed. Had to have white on the outside so I just cut up an old white sheet and ironed it on.
