Living in the city has it advantages and disadvantages. One of the disadvantages is privacy. Growing up in the country there were no neighbors, therefore no need for window treatments.
Curtains, drapes and blinds are a must in suburbia. So, here is my first simple faux roman shade DIY. I’m starting in the most private place of all - the bathroom.
My fabric was found from the remnants pile at the fabric store. Which is a good place to find fabric for small projects, because the prices are unbeatable.
The slate blue looks great and adds some color to my dark gray powder room. First I cut the fabric and then hemmed the edges all the way around.
Afterwards I taped the fabric to the wall, so I could get an idea of where I wanted it to start and stop on the window.
Next I folded the fabric then pinned it in place. Once both sides were pinned, I sewed a few knots to hold the folds.
I attached the fabric to a small piece of wood with a staple gun, then use a few nails to hold it all in place.
Now I just need some new lighting in this dark little powder room!
