Burlap Curtains

I have been looking and looking for some fabric for the curtains in our living room. I have scoured Hobby Lobby and Target and have not been able to find anything that fits my vision or my budget so... I was very inspired by The Nester's curtains, they are fabulous! But I needed six panels and that equals a lot of money, so I decided I would do something with burlap. I have been wanting to jump on this band wagon but have not found exactly how to incorporate into our new house. This is what I came up with...

I used 7 yards of burlap
2 cans of espresso spray paint
poster board (stencil)

First, I cut my fabric into the panels that I needed.

I cut out my stencil with the poster board. My stripes are about 4 inches long.

Spray paint the entire panel and let dry

Then I sewed up all the rough edges and here you go!
