So remember that time I had gold curtains in my bedroom? Well, I decided I hated them after a short time. I tried dyeing and bleaching them to no avail. Finally, I decided to just paint our old curtains black!
I had a can of black oops paint that I bought at Lowe’s a couple months ago. I briefly considered painting our French doors black (which may still happen eventually), but decided the office needed a set of curtains more than a set of black French doors. So, the painting began…
I gotta be honest, I was a little nervous during the process. The curtain soaked up a TON of paint. Each panel took one quart of paint! That was the only downside of this project. My first quart was only $2.50 (oops section price), but I had to go back and get a second quart for $13 for the second panel. So, just be warned that you may use a lot of paint if you decide to paint curtains!
Even though this project cost about $15 versus the $2.50 I had expected it to cost, it was still more than worth it. I LOVE the look of my new curtains! They totally make the room. If I had opted to buy new 95” good quality curtains for this room, it would have cost much more than $15. So, I consider it a win.
They look great against our newly painted walls! We ended up going with Polar Star by Valspar in this room. We love it! It may be my favorite paint color choice in our house so far. It feels so much more cool, crisp and airy. Gracie and I love working in our office now.
The pictures below give you a better idea of how the curtains look off of our foyer. They compliment my new black foyer table perfectly!
