Remember when John mused about who would win the bathroom race he wanted to frame out the mirror and I was on the DIY window shade train here? Well, chugga chugga, baby. Momma won. As for the process, it was a semi-similar system to the shade I recently made for the kitchen ó except even simpler. There was still no sewing machine involved, but this time there was also no pinning and less fabric I only needed half a yard ó so it took a lot less time. You ready for the breakdown? I thought it would be fun to do a minute by minute rundown, so here we go.
Blinds make for great window coverings and decorations, but store-bought ones can be expensive. Save money by making your own at home. You can make a basic blind by sewing together fabric and fabric lining. To roll up the blinds, repurpose parts from old store-bought ones or sew dowel rods onto the fabric. Put the finished blinds on the wall for a functional and decorative way to enhance any room.
Do you have a window just dying to be spruced up? Unlike standard curtains and blinds, Roman shades create a smooth, streamlined silhouette and allow only the desired amount of light into a room. Not only are they classic and contemporary, but they don't require a lot of special hardware, making them easy to set up for the novice. To make a Roman shade, cut a piece of wood to fit across the top of your window opening. Then, select a decorator weight fabric to make the shade out of. Measure, cut, and pin the fabric to ensure it is the right size.
