I’ve been trying to decide what to do with the new white Ikea curtains I got for our bedroom. Dye part of them? Paint them? Keep them white? I was leaning toward dying the bottoms of them until I saw this post from Homey Oh My saying that dye didn’t cut it for her black and white ombre pillows—she had to use paint. I want a really deep, rich black, but I don’t want to use a bunch of fabric paint, so to the Internet I went to search for some solutions and inspiration. As usual, the Internet did not disappoint.
But I didn’t just find some awesome tutorials on how to customize your curtains, I found some great posts on making your own curtains from scratch as well. (Side note: I reaaaally wanted to make these curtains from scratch, but I just don’t have the time to fit curtains in now with all of my other projects, so Ikea saved the day.) So if you need curtain inspiration, look no further. Here it is—20 curtain DIYs to transform your rooms, including stellar tutorials on making curtains (rod pocket, pinch pleat, tab top, grommet, and outdoor) and customizing curtains (painting, dying, lining, and hemming)!
