Paint is one of our favorite ways to give something a brand new look. Designer curtains set you back a pretty penny, but so many of the designs that are popular right now are so easy to do yourself (either with some simple dropcloth curtains or with a basic pair of curtain panels). So we collected our favorite DIY painted curtain designs to get you started saving money while making your windows beautiful!

Check out all of the All Things Windows goodness here, and share using #AllThingsWindows on social media. Don’t forget to come link up your window-related blog posts or Instagram photos at the party, too!
