Done in a Day: Stenciled Window Shade
Shade: 37¼" x 66" light-filtering vinyl shade in white by Levolor (levolor.com), available through Lowe’s; lowes.com.
Brackets: Inside-Mount Shade Brackets, also by Levolor, also available through Lowe’s.
Completing your project is easy once you prep your shade and get the hang of applying the paint. Don’t worry about achieving perfection. If you’ve never stenciled before, try a few practice designs on poster board. Hang your finished shade alone for a clean, tailored look, or layer it with simple curtains for softness.
Tip: Start with a little bit of paint. You can always add more.
