We were commissioned by a new 'client' (my older brother and his wife) to give their curtains a sleek skyline look. But first, you should go take a tour of their classy high-end Chicago loft. Here's a photo of their impressive great room. Amazing, right?
We started by hanging the curtains end-to-end in the garage. Using an overhead projector, we blasted the image below (actual Chicago skyline) onto the curtains... and traced it with a fabric pencil!
Due to space limitations (and because unlike their swanky loft, our ceilings are less than 12 feet tall) we spread them all over our house to dry, and spent a day tiptoeing around the edges. Imagine if we had spilled a plate of spaghetti on them! It definitely crossed our minds.
OK OK! Here you go! A final photo of the curtains hung in the sexy Chicago loft!
Do you have any horror/success stories from painting on fabric? What kind of paint did you use? And did it work out well for you?
