Easy Roman Shade Reveal

And here it is, my finished diy roman shade!

I am really happy with the result, and especially happy with the $30 price tag.



I thought it'd be visually interesting to do the flange in the horizontal stripe.



The room is coming together, and I should have a full room reveal somewhat soon. :)



Answers to a couple questions/comments:

Where did you get the fabric? I'm sorry to say the fabric is from the Los Angeles Fashion District.

I hope it's as easy as it looks! Oh it is, I definitely recommend to everyone. The entire project took me no more than an hour and a half from start to finish.

  28. I'm so excited about trying this. I actually found two roman shades at a consignment sale for $5 --exactly the right size, but the fabrics are not neutral. Do you think it would work to spray adhesive a layer of blackout liner, then spray my real fabric on top of that? They are lined, so should I try to seam rip off the top layer and just use the liner as the base? What are your thoughts?

  29. the shades look so smart......easy to take care and enough tough.
