Fun Faux Roman Shades

At last..

What a fun fast journey this has been.

As you may remember, I put out an SOS looking for this fabric.


Sold out. No longer in stock. Sorry.

But I'm not a quitter.


I pressed on and searched.

I googled.

I prayed.

(insert heavenly music)

I spotted this image and tracked her down like a coon dog sniffin' a trail!

I will make it a bit easier for ya'll and just share the link here.

(Now that you are back from purchasing your yardage...hehe..)

I started with clothes pins.

In the past I feared  cutting fabric and wallpaper. Fear?  Really?

Not anymore!

I just cut that baby.

I even may have used kiddie scissors out of Madison's back pack....really.

I moved it around a bit till I got the look I was going for.

No, not balloon shades..remember those?

I had a house full of em!

I folded till it looked about even, which by the way, they are not.

It's drives my husband crazy...ha!

Let's back up a step...

I sewed a liner to the back for a more custom look ;)

It also help add thickness for shape and shade.

I tacked here and there.

I then folded a very tiny amount over a piece of scrap wood.

Small nails worked perfect to hold it into place.

I then screwed the board onto the wall a few inches higher than exsisting window.

Mmmmm love~

I really love how they bring fun back into this kitchen!

Can you guess what color I'm playing with now?
