I, along with my assistant, Chuck, worked on the Roman Shade today. It's now hanging and I thought I would treat the two of you who are dying to see it with a couple of pictures.
The rest of the windows will be treated over the next few weekends.
Here it is.
I'm going to tell you a secret. We used that bonding stuff to put the new fabric over the existing Roman Shade and then I made the little valance. I did sew the edges before we wrapped them around, so to a child under 15, it would look professional. Two hundred staples later and it's finished. Honestly, it would have been easier to start from scratch....you know buying the Roman Shade kit, rings and string and pulleys....but halfway in, it seemed too late...and we had a shade with all that stuff already on it.
My assistant took a picture because. I love how the silverware drawer is open. Those curious forks are at it again.
Let's discuss the fabric. Black, golden yellow, reds, greens, a little cream and GRAY. The winning point. Now it makes the gray cabinets BELONG.
Is it the fabric of my dreams? No. But it works.
It's 7:00 p.m. Chuck and I are headed out for a date. Yes, I date my assistant. He said if I cleaned up my potty mouth, we could be on HGTV together. Ha. Like that's going to happen....the part about cleaning up my mouth.
I sometimes say a bad word or two when I cut myself with the scissors or poke the pins in my fingers or can't find the ruler or my assistant doesn't move fast enough.
