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.
