So remember this post Roman Shades
Yeah.... that was October 16, 2010. Well I can honestly say as of July 9, 2011 the Roman Shades are complete, but that's what happens when you're in your final year of graduate school. A friend of mine brought my material that she picked up in Malaysia. I fell in love with the material and decided they would make the perfect curtains. Wanting a type of curtain that could fully display the pattern, I decided on Roman Shades. However I didn't want shades that were tucked inside the window like traditional roman shades. My apartment already has mini-blinds, and I don't want to take them out and store them especially when I already own a curtain rod.
I asked my Mom for help, but she told me I could figure it out on my own. Turns out I COULD. This website gave the best tutorial and directions. I slightly improvised for my curtain rod needs, but I think they turned out beautifully.
Here are a couple pictures of the finished product.
