More Stenciled Curtains!

I received the sweetest e-mail last week from Amy at Triangle Honeymoon.  She wrote......

Hi Carmel,
 
 My husband and I were inspired by your stenciled drapes and decided to
 make our own version for our living room. We wanted to be sure to share
 with you! Thanks so much!


This totally made my day!  I inspired someone?!  I immediately clicked the link and literally gasped out loud!  Her curtain panels came out so so great!


I mean really, how awesome do these look?!  AMAZING!  She used drop cloths from Lowes and the same Olive Leaf Ikat stencil (which are currently on sale until the end of the month) that I used on my curtains.  You can read all about her project here.  

                

Blogging has really been a blessing in my life.  I'm so flattered and honored that she shared this project with me!   

Head on over to Triangle Honeymoon and say hello.  You won't believe this but they're actually making more stenciled ikat curtain panels to hang in their adjoining dining room!

Have you stenciled anything lately?

  1. WOW! That is stunning! And I am almost scared to look at her blog b/c I just sprang for very similar ikat fabric for my own drapes, which was on sale but surely not as inexpensive as drop cloths. Thanks for sharing this beautiful project! I'm inspired (by her and you!)

  11. Love, love, love this. And, your dining room Ikat wall. I actually just bought Ikea curtain panels to do the same for my living room. I just painted bold stripes in my foyer...now I've got the painting confidence to do my own curtains!

  14. Hey girl, I know this is an old post, but I am thinking of using drop cloths as drapers in our freshly painted living room--at least until i can buy the fabric I really want. Our ceilings are 9 1/2 feet tall so I need something custom and don't want to pay a fortune. I think yours are beautiful! Do you still like them? Any tips for a drop cloth newbie?
