Stenciled Curtain Panels Tutorial + GIVEAWAY

This past weekend I gave my mother’s guest bedroom a much needed makeover. The last project to complete the room transformation was giving some plain old curtain panels a facelift with the Large Wonderment Trellis Stencil by Royal Design Studio and some paint.

stenciled curtain panel tutorialI purchased some cheap beige curtain panels from Walmart, I think for less than $15 for the pair.  I then grabbed some leftover paint from my mom’s kitchen cabinet makeover and a small foam roller.

    I like the Acanthus Trellis Wall Stencil. The curtain panels you did look so good! I’m hoping to do something similar to cut costs on all panels I’m going to need in my new house!

    Love this. I used a stencil from Royal Design to paint curtains in my office and they turned out great. Right now, I’m liking the Large Rattan Wallpaper Bari J stencil! They have some really cute new stencils!

    I was just looking at the wonderment trellis for an upcoming bedroom project. So glad to see it in use. I have been using RDS stencils for several years. Love them! Thank you.

    OH MY GOODNESS!!! I have been in love with the Indian Paisley one for awhile but worried it would be too busy but I LOVE the one you did on your curtains! Especially since I have the same curtains!! :D Thanks for the giveaway and the inspiration!

    Great idea to use leftover paint. You can also frequently get free paint at paint stores, from mixing mistakes. Probably a good thing to get when you are practicing for stencils with the first time. I love the Chez Ali Moroccan stencil.
