Since adding the new faux cowhide rug to the dining room and with Christmas approaching, I decided it was time to change up the curtains too. The marbled painted ones (click HERE) reminded me too much of spring and summer. I was inspired by the shower curtains that I showed you in my bathroom post (click HERE) and decided to go with black and white fabric painted curtains but more black than in the inspiration.
I have an entire hoarded stash of plain white Ikea Merete curtains in my attic. I bought them a long time ago when they were still cheaper than they are now.
So the only thing I had to do is grab a pack of the Merete curtains, some black acrylic paint
I measured and taped off the outlines, mixed my paint and started painting:
That’s it, so easy!
And they make such a difference don’t you think so? It was so hard to take photos that day though. The sun was blaring. Hope I have better luck when I show you my Christmas tour next week.
It’s all very bare right now because I was getting ready to decorate for Christmas.
You can barely tell in the photos but I also added the Ikea Liselott roller blind to our window. Unfortunately they discontinued other plain white roller shades and only have this patterned one now. I needed some shades because after 14.5 years of living here I was just sick and tired of not being able to close off the window to everyone. No privacy before!
The pattern of the Ikea Liselott roller blind is really pretty though and somewhat perfect for Christmas:
Are you as much into changing up curtains as I appear to be? I’m not sick and tired of my grey and white striped curtains yet though. They are so versatile and I’m able to change up my decor with them.
That’s it for today.
And here are photos and links of the other curtains I made:
