Table Runner Turned Roman Shade
I have had this make-shift scrap of fabric hanging form a tension rod in my kitchen window since we bought our house last May. Frankly I have had a hard time decorating. I don't know if it is because we own this house...but the decorating is scaring me for some odd reason. Since the new year I made myself a list of things I want to accomplish...So things have been getting done. Yay me!
I recently took a trip over to "World Market" which is closing its doors, so they have lowered their prices alot! I found this awesome table runner for $10 and it had all of my colors, a nice rusty burnt orange and turquoise/aqua...I had to have it.
Here it is...
I decided to turn it into a roman shade for my kitchen window. So I made a trip to Joanns and got a Roman Shade Kit originally $19.99 but I had a 40% coupon...so $10 later , I was ready to try this for the first time...
I just followed the directions on the package, and it turned out great!
And here is the Before.
Honestly, this wasn't a very fun project. I'm not sure I'll try it again.
Thanks for coming by....and come back later cuz there is more to come!
