Shower Curtain Fix-Up

I have been waiting months to get a new shower curtain.  Our old one was too dark.  But after all the searching I just could not find one I liked.  So I made my own.

I wanted a mostly white curtain with a touch of modern blue, and that is just what I got.


This is how I did it:

Gather Supplies:
Paint
Stencil brush
White shower curtain
Stencil
Something to protect your table

Mix Paint Color:
I used several colors to get the blue I liked.  I once had a classmate in art school who suggested I make my own colors and not just use the bottle colors.  That was one of the best suggestions ever.  This color has just a touch more depth. 

Stencil Curtain:
Lay the stencil on the curtain.
Apply pain to the end of the brush.  Then pat off extra paint on a scrap piece of paper.

Pat paint over the stencil, make sure not to have too much paint on the brush or it will bleed.
Remove stencil and let dry.  The results are amazing. 



And, just because I love her, and she loves to be in my photos here is what was hiding behind my new curtain:
 Rhea snuck behind the curtain....
 ... and poked her head out at the end.  She is such a cutie.

Come back tomorrow for a giveaway!

  15. Dear Anonymous, it was a regular fabric shower curtain and fabric paint. I'm sorry I did not make that clear in the post. Good luck.

  18. Just so everyone knows.... I used a regular fabric shower curtain and fabric paint. The fabric paint is great because it is deigned to be used on fabric so it does not get stiff and can be washed in the washing machine. I have used this fabric paint in many projects in my house and it washes beautifully.
