Here we are for Brassy Apple's trash to treasure party. Plastic mini blinds need some help- so here we go- covering them with fabric. **These are the first ones I have ever tried to cover- so there are many imperfections - but I have learned how to do it-- and can see how easy it is once you get the hang of it-- and I am going to cover every mini blind in my house!!!
This is the window in Dave's office/piano room/game room. We just don't want to spend money on window treatments right now- this project was perfect as it cost a total of $0. I had the fabric on hand. (for this one I sewed together large patches of material first)
Go and see the Little Green Notebook. She is the brains behind this project and she has step by step instructions.
Here is another mini blind that I covered for my art room. I love the Amy Butler fabric on top. You can still pull the cord (it is behind the fabric) and the shade raises or lowers.
This shade took me 35 minutes from start to finish. (that included the glue drying time!!!!!). Once again- I know there are little imperfections here on my experiments- but this technique has so many possibilities and has me excited about each window in my house!
Ok, tell me- would you try it?
