Grain sacks no more! Check out the window shade I made with those vintage grain sacks from my last post! Isn't it gorgeous? I didn't entirely go for the formal Roman shade look as planned, but I think this simple tiered balloon shade is just dreamy!
The best part? It was SO EASY!
Again, here is a look at those $6 vintage grain sacks before I worked my magic...
It took me about an hour this evening to put it together. I took pictures along the way so I can write up a good tutorial on how to make one.
Thank you to everyone that posted a comment leading me to some other DIY roman shade instructions. It actually inspired me to create my own SUPER easy DIY shade, I can't wait to share!
Can you guess what my secret is for holding up those tiers? It might be something you have at home already if you have a stocked sewing kit!
So what do you think?
I love the little ticking stripes down the center and sides along with the text.
I hope to have the tutorial posted by the weekend.
On a related note- I am trying to improve my tutorial writing skills. I am aware sometimes I don't write enough information about each step. So I hope this one is better! I took a lot more pictures than in the past and I will do my best explaining all the steps.
I will also include better pictures of the Guest Room with both finished window shades! A Head Over Heels post is coming up too! Get excited!
