Thanks so much for all of your sweet comments and shares on my new bedroom desk I shared on Monday! We always love reading your comments! I have been busy, busy redecorating my bedroom. Today I am going to share my new roman shades and window panels I made for the room!
I have given tutorials on both of these types of window treatments before!
I did the same basic steps, but modified them just a bit by adding 2 fabrics.
You can see my DIY Roman Shade Tutorial HERE. This is a very simple tutorial to create great, working roman shades. I use mine everyday, and they have held up for years!
I found my fabrics at Fabric.com. I actually ran across the fabric at Joann’s first, but was able to get it MUCH cheaper at Fabric.com. I ordered it and received it within 3 days with free shipping… Woohoo!
My main fabric is a Robert Allen linen duck fabric. It has the look of a linen, without all the wrinkle! It is also much thicker than linen, which is great for window treatments.
My other fabric is called Premier Prints Gotcha Summerland Grey. I love the mix of this more modern print with the traditional linen fabric. It’s a perfect combo for me!
I used a blackout liner for both the shades and panels, and my room is very dark with everything closed up. I got mine on sale at Joann’s for around $2 a yard.
Here are a few pics of how my roman shades turned out!
I added a 7″ strip of fabric to each side before starting the shade. That is how I achieved the look… Super simple!
Both of these projects are really simple, and only require straight stitches. It may be time for some of you to dust off your machines!
Here are a few pictures of my window panels…
And a few from around the bedroom…
Hope you love it as much as I do! It has been work, but so worth it!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and let me know if you have any questions!!
