|I apologize for the mess, and bonus points if you spot the preview of what's to come!|
After patrolling my favorite stores and websites for 10+ months looking for reasonably priced, geometrical patterned (as opposed to floral or stripes, etc), that fit my color scheme (clay brown, not chocolate)...I was about over it. One day, though, I was randomly watching "The Nate Berkus Show". He featured a stencil to use as a wall-covering, and immediately I knew I had my answer...I would stencil my Vivan curtains (genius, I know...note sarcasm).
My project supply list included the following:
- set of curtain panels (I already mentioned I used IKEA Vivan)
- 3 inch **sponge** roller
- at one point in my project, I needed a new roller and attempting to avoid a trip to my craft store I went to Home Depot (more convenient) instead...BIG MISTAKE! The wall rollers just pulled up my stencil constantly
- acrylic paint in chosen color (I went through approximately 5 bottles for 2 panels)
- stencil paper
- craft knife to cut stencil
- stencil tape to hold stencil down each time
- Nate's stencil
The process was really pretty straightforward. First, I printed out the stencil and taped it on top of stencil paper. Using the craft knife, I traced/cut out the lines of the stencil.
