Painting Curtains

I have noticed a trend happening with curtains and it is to paint them, not just any color but more often they are....BLUE! I have found two good examples of how to transform a curtain with paint.

 This Patterned curtain is done using stencils and left over latex paint to match the current wall colors.

On this over sized curtain they did Ombre Stripes using masking tape and paint.

These got me to thinking of a post "DIY Screen Printing" by Whimsy love where she did printed t-shirts using embroidery hoops and mod podge. I would bet that her technique could work for curtains too, just a little more time consuming.
