Project Completed!

I have so many little projects that I'm dying to do around the house, and not enough money or time to do all of them.

So today, I picked a simple easy one. And you're gonna love it.

When we moved into this awesomely decorated house, it had the most gorgeous pink blinds in the kids bedrooms. (Thickly laid on sarcasm.)


I have two more sets, if someone is dying for them. You know you want them.

Normally, I'd just have tossed them, but a couple of months ago, I came across the best idea ever!

And today, I followed her tutorial.

I used a little heavier home dec fabric because I didn't want you to be able to see the pink-ness through the fabric. It really was as easy as she makes it out to be. Took maybe one hour, start to finish.

They really just make me so darn happy!

And despite the appearance here, it's not actually crooked. I promise.

If you read the tutorial and have any questions, feel free to ask! You can do this!

So, so cute! I wanted to do this in Macy's room, but blinds wide enough for her window start at like $20 (even the crappiest of crappy ones). I've got a new project on tap, but now I can't find the bin of fabric for her room.

This is the most fantastic idea ever!! I have to try this. Thanks for sharing!

I'll take your pink blinds. We don't have ANY in our house. June's room still doesn't have any window treatments. I would worry more if she weren't on the second floor...

The new fabric blinds are awesome. You really have a nack with crafty things. And there are few feelings as good as looking at something you have made by yourself and knowing it is good. God taught us in Genesis that we should be proud of our handywork.

Ohh those do look great! Nice job. And I think the black spray paint looks good on the brackets.

Carrie said...

That is so neat. I have a bunch of mini-blinds in my house. They look so much nicer covered in fabric.pub

I LOVE that idea and have been pricing roman shades for sometime! I will have to let you know how mine turn out when I do it! Thanks for the great idea!!!

I love that!! I had red blinds in my room as a kid. These are much nicer.

Those are so cute! Your mom told me to check out your craftiness and, I daresay, you are the queen. Thanks for posting the link, I just may have to try it. We currently have nothing in the boys' room and we are tired of them waking up with the sun in the mornings.

Jenny said...

Those are completely awesome. I MUST make some of these for the boy's room and Paisley.

I love this! That green is the most gorgeous shade too. I'm going to check out the tutorial and then I'll be right back. :)
