Kitchen Update: Faux Roman Shade

Monday, November 19, 2012

We are still putting the finishing touches on our kitchen remodel. However, this is actually not the finished product. I decided to make a few tweaks (and it needs to be ironed as you can tell!)




I've had this chevron fabric for a few months now and just now have finally made a curtain for the kitchen window. It's Premier Prints Zoom Zoom Twill in Harmony

Isn't it just perfect? I'm in love with it. I was going to make a roman shade like my bedroom blinds, but didn't know how that would work in the space. And realistically I wasn't going to have it all the way down.

Then, I saw Young House Love's brilliant faux roman shade and decided to make my own version.



I actually used a tension rod and sewed mine instead of making no sew one like they did.


I will post a full tutorial once I make the final touches. I'm going to shorten it a bit and fix some of the little puckers.

I also may or may not have made a bonus mini curtain for the girls play kitchen! Stay tuned!

  1. We DIYed Roman shades as well: http://createbakecelebrate.blogspot.com/2012/11/create-diy-roman-shades.html

    Ours are no sew, just some adhesive on a cheap roman shade!
