Before and After

Before...french door with faux wood blinds.

I installed these yesterday. The pictures do not do these justice...they turned out BEAUTIFUL. If I do say so myself....TOOT TOOT...oh, excuse me that was me just tooting my own horn!

At my suggestion the homeowner is going to paint the doors black. I think it will make a huge difference.
This is the first time I have made romans like this...lined, with dowel pockets in the lining, wieghted at the bottom and three lined up in a row. I was thrilled with the finished product. Everything hung straight and level and the pattern in the fabric matched all the way across!
A lot of fun to make...except hand sewing on all the rings...OUCH! I think the girls bathroom needs some new roman shades!

The pictures of the blind down didn't turn out very well...BOO HOO
