Here are some examples:
How it works (according to the blogsphere): step 1. buy cheap IKEA curtains. Step 2. tape off a pattern - stripes, chevron etc. Step 3. paint. Step 4. peel off tape and admire.
I've already got step 1 down... except 1 thing. All good curtain painters/blog enthusiasts bought white curtains to start with. I have brown. These:

I have 2 paint options - blue or white. Blue paint since we got an entire gallon when we painted (and repainted oops) the bookcase and white since we just happen to have some white paint lying around. Realistically I could buy more paint but we're on a budget so those are our 2 options. I was thinking stripes since that would be easiest plus we have horizontal lined blinds so that'd go well together. Chevron would be my bomb but that's way more work and I'm a beginner.
Will find some bedroom photos of where the curtains will be hung. soon.
Soo.... Will white paint look good? Will it bleed through or not be translucent enough for brown curtains? Eak the possibilities! I just don't know.
Off to experiment...
