sunroom 1 hour makeover

11:03 AM

We have been so sick these last few days, some strange mutant stomache virus has got ahold of us. But I wanted to post these pictures I took last weekend. These are of my sunroom. With a fast and curious little 9 month old, a "helpful" toddler and active kindergartner and only 2 arms this is the best I could do for now. Not Roman Shades but they are a vast improvement from the yucky old mini blinds.

All I did was measure the length and width of the mini blinds, cut out the fabric to match (sew the edges so it's one big rectangle). Glue the fabric on the top and bottom of the mini blind with fabric glue. The bottom doesn't look perfect, but you'd never notice unless you turned it over and looked.

From the outside when they are shut they look like regular old mini blinds. But when they are up like this, you can see the fabric from the the outside and it's pretty.

It has made a world of difference in the look and feel of the whole main floor living area.
