I needed a new curtain for in my kitchen and decided to make one from drop cloth...then I decided to paint it to look like an air mail envelope. A few of my friends questioned the idea so I'm glad it turned out. I'm not sure if it's unique cool or unique weird...so we'll see what other people think when they see it in person.  Smiley



I made the file in Powerpoint, taped the curtain to my wall, projected the image on it and traced everything. Then I spent a few days painting. I'm happy to be finished and am proud to say I only messed up the paint in one area. :-) The total cost was under $30. The curtain itself cost $20 and the  paint (red, black, blue and dark blue) was under $10 (I used coupons at Michael's)

This is how I made the drop cloth curtain:

This show more steps of painting it and the image I traced onto the curtain:

Here are some close ups:





And another one showing the whole curtain.
