design fail: stenciled roller blinds

After finishing my bedroom curtains, I felt cocky and decided to stencil my roller blinds.  The headboard has a giant fleur di lis, so I stenciled a navy blue fleur di lis on the roller blind.

I should have stopped while I was ahead.

It didn't quite turn out the way it looked in my head. In my head it was cool, with a random pattern.  In real life it is..not cool.  And apparently I am too OCD to actually do a random pattern, because with the exception of one misplaced stencil, it looks like a pretty evenly spaced staggered pattern.

So! I've ruined two blinds.  I need to fall back and regroup here.  I feel that there have been a  bunch of design fails around here lately.

However, in very exciting news, I FINALLY finished the dining room curtains I made out of shower curtains.  But its now 11 pm on Thursday night, so I'll wait till Friday to take pictures. Hopefully by lunchtime on Friday I'll have a post up.

I am not going to think about the fact that my little ones will wake me up in about six hours.  


  1. I love the idea though of something blue on the blinds. Can you just add more to what you have? And, I love the new bed! Beautiful!

  2. I agree, maybe you could just add more of the fleur de lis. I think you'll end up liking it. Can't wait to see the dining room curtains!

  3. I don't think it's a fail! You just need more I think. Crafty idea, though!

  4. I want to buy latest roller blinds for my room and it should be on reasonable and affordable rates. My room color is pink so that’s blinds color is also in pink. Please suggest me from where I can buy these roller blinds.
