I am not always the best at figuring out how to do things, with 4 young ones to take care of, the energy and sound mind isn't always there. However copying someone elses idea...perfect!
Since moving into our house we have done a lot of painting, which means the old yucky blinds were taken down and not put back up. So the kitchen window has been bare which wasn't an issue until the sun started setting later. Now the sun shines right in my eyes while trying to cook dinner. The window needed a prettier replacement than blinds, but I wasn't sure what.
I saw this tutorial on making a roman shade with fabric and blinds. Since I don't sew, I did the no sew version.

I am seriously a little shocked I was able to do this. It was so easy and almost impossible to screw up. Yay for simple things that make me feel crafty, plus it was fun!
