That's right. You can pretty much paint anything. And, after painting my rug, everything else seems to be pretty easy. After all, I didn't try to change the color of the curtains, I just painted stripes. (What can I say...sometimes I just have to learn things the hard way!)
My dining room curtains desperately NEEDED to be replaced. This is probably the only time that when I say NEED, it's actually true. Not that I should remind anyone of how bad they were, but if you don't believe me, check them out here. They were sad, sad, sad--wrong color, saggy, the lines were neither cut nor sewn straight...they had some issues (more accurately, I have cutting straight line and sewing issues). My new curtains? I'm happy with these. And, even though stripes aren't that unique anymore, I still love them, and the impact you get for the price of some cheap curtains, paint, and tape...you can't go wrong. Check out the full tutorial at Reckless Glamour. The only thing I would add is making sure you apply the paint generously so that when the sun shines through, you don't have any splotchy areas. I also taped my curtains to the floor to make sure they were pulled tight.
