OliveLeaf Ikat Stencils

So remember when I did that amazing give-away of Olive Leaf stencils over here. Well the sweet Olive of olive leaf sent me the Ikat pattern no.1 stencil. I originally thought I was going to paint G's ceiling and then I decided it would look a bit weird. SOoooooo I did some curtains. What do you think? Please excuse the crappy photos. It was dark and I was tired...



Here is a little step to.

Stencil
Paint with a tiny bit of water to make it a little easier to work with

  15. My word.
    What a task you took on!
    I admit without any reservation that you did an amazing job!
    Ok so lets talk.
    How long did it take you to do it?
    Will you do a full tutorial?
    Oh this has nothing to do with the drapes, but what is that little throw I spy on the back of the sofa?
    Looks like something I need to back track on your blog to read more about.
    You hit this one out of the park!!!

  22. Now you can make your own ikat fabric in any color, like a rainbow...

    They turned out pretty damn good. I tried stenciling my stairs once, super fail. Ill leave stenciling to others.

  32. OK from the time I left my comment yesterday, till now I have been on and off the Olive website trying to figure out what stencil to get for my curtains. You would think I was making a life or death decision here- uggg, why does one little design choice have to be so hard?

    Anyways, not sure why I thought I should share that with you- but maybe I just wanted to say how much I love your curtains again.

  33. Would it be a crime against humanity to paint that fireplace a glossy white? Some might say, but I don't.

  34. Oh how I love this!!! What a great way to customize your curtains! Thank you so much for this post, I feel so inspired!

    Have a great weekend!

  35. I just found your blog through a reader of mine who told me about your curtains. I used the ikat stencil #2 on paint drop cloths for curtains in my family room, I love Olive Leaf. I also used this same ikat stencil you used here in my dining room - come check it out when you have chance! Have a great day - I love this color combo. Your blog is great - glad to find and follow!

  37. Great job! Two questions: What type of paint did you use? Are they machine washable?

    Thanks!

  40. I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
