Roman Shades

So most of our weekend was spent doing fun things like this :)

 So this morning I decided I needed to do something productive. My sis is coming in one week and I am racing to try and finish the bathroom before she gets here. What a marathon this bathroom has been, but I'm almost ready to post the final pics!

A few months back I read a post from Little Green Notebook where she turned her mini blinds into roman shades. Genius I tell ya! Well the mini blinds in my bathroom were grrooosss, they were in the house when we bought it and had collected dust fooreevver. So first I laid them out on my bathroom floor. Making sure to let them all the way out.

Then following the directions from above, I slipped all but 6 of the slats off. My window is 52" tall and I wanted a little extra so I placed my slats 8" apart. I had this green curtain hanging in there already so I just cut it to fit. Next I hot glued my slats down. *The tutorial says dont use hot glue but I did and it worked fine* Be careful when gluing your slats not to glue the lift cord and at the top make sure that you can still slip your blinds back in their brackets.

Here they are! I have to say I'm pretty satisfied with them! Now I have to take the brackets from the old cheap curtain rod down and finish up that bathroom! (P.S. Yes that is a trailer full of sand and bails of hay in my backyard, I live in the middle of podunkville people!)
 Hope you have a good day!
