Well, I've finally finished up painting the master bedroom drapery. It was a long process, but I'm very happy with the results. The paint isn't super opaque but the imperfections give it a sort of block printed feel. Remember this was the original concept which I'd narrowed down from several options
And what it looked like prior to painting.
In progress... Textile Medium was the key to this phase.
And the final product.
The draperies shrunk when washing (lesson #1 - wash first and then hang hardware), so if you look closely they're a tad short. Maybe one day I'll get around to doing something about it, but they're fine for now and definitely add the layer of softness to the wall that I was looking for.
