Peacock Feather Stenciled Curtains

Let’s talk about stencils.  Today I’m sharing my peacock stenciled curtains, but before I do — I have a confession to make.  Stencils used to intimidate me a bit… seriously.   There’s something about them that seemed a wee-bit permanent {hee-hee}. I mean, what if you make a mistake?  Well,  I officially faced that intimidation head on.  Boom!  Enter Royal Design Studio.  I was tickled silly to find the variety of stencils they offered — small and large AND for use on furniture, walls, rugs and so much more.

I’ve been wanting to get new curtains for our guest room.  I’ve actually been eyeing them over at West Elm, but I wasn’t ready to make the commitment or financial investment.  So, I decided to pick a stencil and upcycle the boring brown curtains currently in there.  After browsing their website, I decided on the Large Peacock Fancy Stencil.

After receiving my happy mail, I procrastinated.
And procrastinated some more….
This silly girl waited until last minute.
Like right before the holidays to tackle this project!
Silly, silly girl.  Right? {sigh}

Soooo, I went to work.  I grabbed a few quick supplies.
Stencil, Paint, Painters Tape and Roller.

And I started the stenciling process, and found it not so scary!
I wasn’t looking for perfection.  I like the used, worn effect.
The small paint roller worked perfectly and
this project took approximately 60-90 minutes.

AFTER:

This inexpensive upcycle took place using the
Peacock Fancy Wall Stencil and  Versailles Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!

What do you think?
How would you like to win a stencil for you next home project?
Next Friday — I’ll be hosting a Royal Design Studio giveaway!
Hope to see you there!  Happy Painting…

I’ll be partying {here and here}.

    I’ve never stenciled fabric before, but after this post I might just have to look into it! Your drapes turned out beautifully, and you make it sound so easy. I’ll be pinning this to do.

      Thank you, Debbie! I had never stenciled on fabric for a larger project… I wasn’t sure what to expect, but they did turn out nicely. Thanks for pinning too. Forgive me for my tardy reply…. I guess I’ve fallen a little behind. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

    They turned out so pretty! I have a little hallway that I constantly contemplate stenciling but I just haven’t taken the plunge yet. I get overwhelmed with stencil choices haha! There are so many great ones from Royal Design Studio.

      Hi Megan! Thanks so much for loving on my stencil project :) Yes… decisions, decisions. Sometimes too many options can be a little overwhelming. LOL. Been there, done that. Well, I’ll have to keep an eye out for any changes in your little hallway {wink}

    Kelly! These are fab! I too am petrified of stencils… Same reasons… What if I screw up? What if it looks bad after all that hard work? In fact, I started to stencil our curtains in the living room, but just couldn’t go through with it. You make me want to try it again. Love these!

      YAY! So glad you liked the way the curtains turned out… If and when you finish those curtains, let me know. I’d love to see how they turn out. I apologize for my tardy reply… I’m playing a little catch up. HUGS.

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
