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!!
