For the kitchen-There are lots of tutorials for the roman shades-mini blinds cheat, but I like this the best. They are lined. Finished product looks polished.

A few weeks back I shared some pics of the window treatments in our master bedroom and I promised to share all the details from the fabric to the “how to” details… well I finally got it done!!! Can you believe I made these with the cheap, ugly mini-blinds that were hanging in our house …

I think I will try using Velcro instead of hot glue, plus it needs to be lined with a white sheet.

Roman shade made from a mini blind. I may have pinned this before, but I really like the photo's in this blog post. Very helpful. (could use velcro for easy removal for washing!)

    Thanks for the Pin. Made my own shade for the 45" window over my kitchen sink. I made them out of black and white print and because my window faces East, I lined my shade with solid black. I used paint for plastic and painted the ribs black as they (of course) were white. Great Pin, Thanks a million!
