Stenciling Stylish DIY Window Treatments

Stenciled Window Treatment Ideas | Royal Design Studio 

Window treatments compliment every room in the house by adding color and pattern to what would be a blank window. Custom drapes, curtains and valances can be quite pricey and so creating your own DIY window treatments with stencils from Royal Design Studio and an inexpensive swath of fabric is an excellent alternative. You can also choose your favorite colors and patterns which may not be the case with specific fabric patterns.  So whether you'd like a more laid back look or a glam elegant design, we have stenciled window treatment inspirations for you that will add super style to your home without blowing the budget.

Stenciled Cornice Board with modern Hollywood Squares Stencil | Contemporary Stenciled Window Treatment Idea | Royal Design Studio


Designer Laurie March of HGTV's The House Counselor wanted a bold yet clean graphic pattern for this contemporary kitchen. She also wanted to provide privacy without losing all of the great light the window brings. She did both by creating a DIY stenciled window cornice with the Hollywood Squares Stencil from our Allover Modern Stencils Collection. Looks SO good, doesn't it? Get the full details of her project in her Stenciled Window Treatment tutorial.

An Ornamental Panel Stencil (OrnPan173) and an Ornamental Center Stencil (OrnCen195) from our sister stencil company, Modello® Designs Stencils, helped artist Jeff Raum create fab stenciled panels for a client's window treatment! They compliment the curtain panels perfectly, don't you think? The elegant color scheme and stencil patterns created a very sophisticated look for less.

Stencil Custom Curtains with Royal Design Studio Stencils 

The Classic Shell Motif Stencil stenciled on the cornice board adds traditional elegance to this space. The Classic Motif Stencils Collection has patterns that add a timeless touch to wall, furniture, and fabric stenciling projects for a classic look that is always in style.


Artist Debbie Hayes designed a "minimalist" cornice board for her living room. After her husband built it, she painted the cornice with French Linen Chalk Paint® decorative paint the same color as her walls. Upon drying, she used the Fabric Damask Stencil as a raised, embossed pattern with layers of tiny beads in a gel medium. She then added Swarovski crystals and antique chandelier crystals to drop down from the treatment. The gorgeous designer window treatment strikes the right balance between femininity and masculinity.

So, whether you're going for colorful curtains or soft, sedate window treatments, stencils and paint allow you to transform plain fabrics and textiles with pattern and color! What will you stencil today?
