All of us want to have a beautiful home inside and out. Mothers/ house wives always try to start a new project to enhance the appearance of their homes and make it more pleasant for their family and guests.
One way to spruce up your home without spending lots of cash is to give that window a boost. Hanging beautiful blinds and curtains is the conventional way of doing it, but they can get a little expensive at times.
For those looking for a new project to try, we recommend you do this simple yet very clever way of transforming your boring blinds into fab Roman shades. It’s easy and very lovely.
Here is an instructional video:
Here’s the complete list of materials and step-by-step guide.
What You Will Need:
1. White faux wood blinds
2. Thick upholstery fabric
5. Modge Podge
7. Foam brush
9. Measuring tape
10. Clothing iron
Measure the length of your window to know the size of blinds you need.
Lay the blind face down and cut the ladder strings on both sides, but NOT the thicker cord adjacent to it.
Divide the length of your window in inches to seven as you will need to space wood plats approximately seven inches apart.
Remove the wood plats you won’t need by breaking them apart. Oooh, this looks a bit therapeutic too!
Get your fabric and face it down. Place the shade on top and space the wooden plats seven inches apart.
Be sure to have excess fabric measuring about two inches on all sides. Run a clothes iron.
Remove the blinds stopper located at the top bracket and cut the adjacent fabric to wrap around.
Apply Modge Podge on the fabric and stopper. Secure with a clothespin until it becomes dry.
Apply Modge Podge on the two sides of each wooden plat and on the two-inch excess fabric near it. Secure with clothespin.
Cover both the top and bottom part of your shade with fabric. Be sure to fold the outer edges. Secure with clothespin until it dries.
Once everything is dried up. Install your DIY Roman shade just like how you would install faux wooden blinds.
