    How To Make DIY Roman Shades On A Budget

    By Barbara Diamond

    Say you have some old mini blinds that have broken pieces or you’re just bored with your plain white ones — there’s a perfect way to recycle them instead of throwing them away. In this video tutorial, you’ll learn how to make custom window treatments on a budget by turning mini blinds into pretty Roman shades, all on your own. These shades are operational like normal blinds, but much prettier. Roman shades are a type of window covering used to block out the sun. They’re different from standard window shades in that they stack up evenly when being opened — but when opened, they are visibly smooth, not bumpy or ribbed like typical vertical shades or blinds. Here are the tools you’ll need:

    • White faux wood blinds
    • Thick upholstery fabric
    • Pencil
    • Scissors
    • Decoupage and bowl
    • Foam brush
    • Clothespins
    • Tape measure
    • Iron

    Some people on YouTube are concerned about seeing the unfinished side of the shade from outside. To solve this issue, one YouTube commenter says, “I would get the same length of fabric and just simply decoupage it to the other side. As long as you line it up correctly it’d look good.” Check out the video below to see the process in action, and create simple and inexpensive, but stylish coasters perfect for enjoying a beverage indoors or out! And don’t forget to SHARE this tutorial with your friends on Facebook!
