I’ve gathered everything together to create new window shades.
Once I figure out how to do one I have at least 6 to fabricate.
I mean I am literally going to “fabricate” the shades: put fabric on them. The old shades matched the old wall color — a pale yellow ochre — now the wall is Revere Pewter so I’m covering them with some greige canvas fabric.
The old shades were made by Smith and Noble and over the years have become spotted and dirty. Last night I cleaned the fabric shades so they would be dry before laminating them with another fabric.
Since they are made from a material that cannot become saturated with water, i.e. not plastic, I carefully vacuumed them and wiped them with a damp sponge.
Never happy with just one project I’d also like to wash the windows before rehanging the shades. I’ll start in the living room (2 windows).
If everything goes well I do one for the west side front window
And the dining room.
If you have tips please give them to me. I’ve put this off long enough.
Are you taking something off the back burner this weekend?
