Are you one of those who have lived your entire life with the same art on the walls?
The same curtains, the same chairs..?
Perhaps, not your entire life but maybe for some years?
Like five of ten?
Well, I was just like you ;)
Now days my whole perspective about these things got a complete overturn! I'm now embracing change, and by doing so I found out that it doesn't have to be labor intense and better yet, easy on your pockets ;)
That's the case with today's project. I like the Roman shade (aff) I have in the kitchen, when I bought it two years ago I was in love with it! Good quality, looks good and it does the job.
The only problem:
I got tired of it :/
My easy, economical and temporary solution was to give it a new look with three simple materials:
Fabric, tape, and a piece of lattice (wood).
My Roman shade is suspended from the ceiling, but there is a small gap, in between the ceiling and the top of the shade where a piece of lattice can perfectly fit.
So, using gaffer's tape, the fabric is attached to the piece of wood. Turn it around.
And since you know the beautiful fabric you picked (Waverly, Pom Pom Play Spa), its going to look great, don't waste your time moving things around. Stick the piece of lattice in the gap and line your army of tape all along each side of your shade.
Go all around "hemming" the fabric to the back of the shade, securing it with the tape.
The back is not going to look too pretty, but in my case, the only ones who are going to notice it are the squirrels, birds and deer that visit my backyard.
You have given your room a total new look!
And for Spring ;)
*Note: As I stated previously, this is a temporary solution. Attaching the fabric might interfere with the pulling up and down mechanism. The roman shade I have is strong, heavy, I think that's big help for the folds to stay in place.
