DIY Roman Shades Tutorial


We just moved into our new home and needed window treatments in the worse kind of way! Custom window treatments can be very expensive, if you’ve ever priced them. I went on the search for ideas for the wall to wall windows (like the ones in the photo). Fortunately, I came across this tutorial by Sailrite!


Originally, I wanted white wooden blinds (not faux wooden blinds), for a cottage look in my home, but quickly changed my mind when I found out how much they were going to cost!

Then I had the bedroom to figure out and as you know our bedrooms are supposed to be our personal sanctuary, where we can relax and unwind. But sometimes the harshness of those white blinds just sticks out like a sore thumb. I wanted something softer and more inviting. It always feels great when you have your mind set on how you want something to look and then it all comes together.

While some people invest hundreds, and even thousands, to get the “perfect” look for their bedroom, one YouTuber has devised a way to redo your window blinds with a minimal amount of money. Check out her DIY solution down below.
