If you are decorating on a budget, you know that most of the time it is cheaper to DIY than to buy. By using plain white curtain panels, you can paint your own curtains using fabric paint and a little measuring. Painting your own curtains is a cheap home improvement idea that is easier than you think. It also complements your room better than any pattern you can find in the store because you get to design it yourself! Even adding simple black stripes to a basic white curtain, as is shown in this tutorial, makes a bold statement in any room.

I never thought about doing that! I have been (kind of) looking for new curtains for the kitchen, but not liking the ones I have seen. I can create my own! I wonder if it would be possible to use a stencil on fabric like that? I have an idea, but I can't freehand an image that's the same on both curtains.

This is a really cool way to add style without buying some high-end designer curtains. Awesome! We'll definitely give this a go this summer, so we can change the feel of our living room.
