I'm ashamed to admit this, but this is how the window looked in our Family Room for uh,
at least a year
The blind on the right just downright broke and fell down.
The string on the blind in the middle is broken and the slats don't hang straight.
I had plans to sew some fancy burlap trimmed roman shades, but I never got around to it.
Well, we have been a little busy with the reno at the Mountain Cottage.
I had a few of these bamboo roman shades from Home Depot that I had bought for the Mountain Cottage. I brought them home because I changed my mind and was going to bring them back because I wanted to make some fabric Roman Shades for the upstairs bedroom
(we'll see how that goes)
Mr. DIY put them up, but they really should have been about one inch wider for a perfect fit.
They still were better than a missing and broken blind.
Ikea to the rescue! I thought the same curtains we have in our Breakfast Room would be perfect to cover up the gaps. Mr. DIY picked up a couple pars of Vivan curtains at Ikea on the way home one day for $9.99 each. Gotta love that!
He picked up a black 10ft rod at Ikea for $7.99.
The curtains are about an inch too long and I might shorten them.
What do you think?
Should I shorten them or not???
