We'd like you to meet Tanya, the creative DIYer behind All Things Beautiful. Tanya was super happy when her screened-in deck was completed. She felt compelled to add some personality to the space using color and pattern. Shs.he chose to stencil her own curtains using drop clot

She bought simple drop cloths for $5 each and our Moroccan Dream Allover Stencil. First she ironed the drop cloths to remove any wrinkles. Then she found a flat surface for her stenciling project. Tanya used blue painter's tape to hold the stencil in place and a dense foam roller to paint the pattern.

She painted the pretty Moroccan pattern using Folk Art's Calypso Blue. As she finished painting the stencil, she would gently lift the stencil and reposition so she could complete the pattern across the drop cloth.

After the stenciled curtains were dry, Tanya ironed them one more time to set the paint. Then she hung them in the screened-in patio. Tanya added the final decorating touches which included colorful accent pillows. Here is the finished room.

    Where did u get that size curtain rod.? I have a wide window in my living room 120 wide and can’t hang curtains because I cannot find a rod long enough. I love the curtains by the way..!!

      I would use pvc pipe and paint it if white doesn't look right for your decor. You can get it in very long lengths at Lowes or Home Depot and so much cheaper than buying a long rod.

    Doesn’t the blue paint transfer to iron?
