Do you remember this post where I got this material for sooooo cheap and planned to make a Roman Blind for the kitchen window, and you all convinced me that Roman Blinds were easy?
Well the thought of making the Roman Blind has been freaking me out a bit (I know, I know it's easy right?) So anyway when I saw the very lovely Tina's post the other day with the roll up blind she make for the little window on her front door, I got inspired!
So on Saturday I got to it and made a roll up blind for the kitchen. Take a look...
Sorry, not fantastic photos, the light has been bad the last two days.
I attached two sets of ribbons to tie the blind up with and I lined the material with a white calico I already had. I think I may get a slightly thicker stick for the bottom of the blind just to make it feel a bit sturdier. I made a pretend pelmet thingy like Tina did...
I painted my wooden branch in a light brown colour to match the brown going through the fabric. So all up I think it probably cost me around $25!!! Pretty good hey!
And just to give you a bit of contrast, here is a photo taken back before we bought the house, when we were just doing an inspection so that you can see the original cafe style curtains and the wood panelling and see, there was no deck...?
I am pretty close to finishing my kitchen makeover so when it's done I'll do a big post with all the before and after pics.
Anyway, what are you up to today???
The cold has taken hold unfortunately so lots of Vitamin Cs for me today :)
Have a lovely day,
