DIY Painted Chevron Curtain Panels

Cool Idea: DIY Chevron Curtains

Maybe it's the innate sense of entitlement I have as a member of Gen Y, but I never liked the phrase, "you can't have it all." Even if it means attaining the things I want in an unconventional way, I strongly believe I can have it all! Case in point: Elizabeth of Peacock Feather's new chevron curtains. Elizabeth wanted a bold pattern to bring together all of the beautiful elements in her bedroom and dreamed of a black and white chevron print on her windows. But, she says, "the idea of sourcing fabric and having full-length drapes sewn seemed like way too much money and time." So instead of looking for a knockoff of a pricey fabric like Rubie Green's chevron East Village pattern, she decided to DIY exactly what she wanted. She picked up some basic white cotton curtains from Ikea for $15 per pair and took to the fabric with semi-gloss acrylic black paint and a 4-inch trim roller, simply painting her desired zig-zag pattern herself! Now that's my kind of girl!
