Old Blinds Get a New Look

Don’t settle for those dreary office style blinds in your home. They’re simply unacceptable in a home environment! What’s the alternative? Simple, neat, sophisticated and elegant Roman shades will be a great addition to any style of interior and absolutely any room, whether it is a living room, bedroom, dining room, children’s room or kitchen.

What you will need:

  • old horizontal blinds
  • a measuring tape
  • a pencil
  • a brush
  • scissors
  • thick upholstery fabric
  • safety pins
  • an iron

Let’s get going:

1. Measure the fabric for the curtains, not forgetting to allow an extra 5 cm on top and bottom and 2 cm on the sides.

2. Using scissors, cut the ropes and remove the horizontal slats so that you have a rod, 2 ropes and 6-7 slats.

3. Mark on the fabric of the place where there will be fastening for horizontal slats.

4. Glue the fabric to the straps.
