How To Stencil Curtains With The Herringbone Pattern


Stenciled Curtains Can Embellish Your Space
Welcome back, my DIY fans! Do you have a coat closet that is screaming for a makeover? Then Cutting Edge Stencils has the perfect project for you. We'd like you to consider replacing those closet doors with stenciled curtain panels. It's the perfect way to conceal your closet and add patterned interest to your space. Today we're going to help you get the hang of stenciling curtain panels yourself. Let's get started...
We'd like to welcome back Katie, the clever DIY blogger behind Addicted 2 DIY. Katie's craft room is one of the few rooms in her home that has a large closet. The location of this room (and its closet) has caused it to act as a craft/coat closet. The over-packed coat closet has large white sliding doors that she has found to be a bit of a nuisance when digging in there for things. So Katie put her DIY cap on and decided to remove the doors and replace them with stenciled curtains. For this project, Katie chose to step outside her neutral comfort zone. She selected an eye-catching geometric, our Herringbone Allover Stencil and a bold Indigo-blue hue. Here is the scoop on how she stenciled her curtains:
Cutting Edge Stencils shares how to stencil DIY curtain panels from Ikea using the Herringbone Allover pattern.
Katie started with plain white LENDA curtains from Ikea.
Then she chose the Herringbone Allover Stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils.
For this project, Katie used a sample jar of Valspar's Indigo Streamer. To give the curtain a soft finish, she mixed the paint with Americana Textile medium following the directions on the bottle.
She used painter's tape to hold the stencil in place while she painted the Herringbone pattern using a dense foam roller.
Here are her DIY Herringbone stenciled curtains.
