Today's Fabulous Fabric Friday is Wildflowers in Navy, from Amy Butler's Daisy Chain line. I know, I'm a little obsessed with AB Fabrics... I won't apologize for it, its fabulous!
|This is one of my earlier Daisy Bags... named 'Daisy' after this fabric!|
I didn't plan on using this fabric for today's Fab. Fab. Friday post, BUT, as fate would have it... I am.
I came home to this the other day... apparently someone wanted to look out the window while the girls and I were away and I forgot to lift the blinds.
Then, last night as my hubby was lowering the blinds, this happened on the opposite set:
|Don't you love how I tried to 'fix' them?|
Yeah, so now our living room blinds look like this:
|Chewed and leaning!|
I CAN'T STAND it!!! It looks even worse from the outside... Don't you feel a little drunk looking at these? Maybe the effect only works if you're actually standing in front of them in person... I feel like the whole window is leaning to the right. Ha!
Enter Pinterest and a DIY Idea:
My plan is to pick up some yardage of my most fav Amy Butler fabric, along with some light weight drapery lining fabric, and re-purpose my plantation blinds into some pretty custom Roman Shades! Yippie for re-using!!
According to my calculations, this little project should cost under $50 to do both shades! If that sounds like a lot, note how much custom designer window treatments run.... Not Cheap.
So, if my plan works out, I'll have custom, one-of-a-kind, roman shades for a steal... yippie!
Now, to convince the husband that we need to paint the living room to match.... *wink*
Have a Fabulous Friday!
