Window treatments anyone can try!

Our back porch needed much TLC when it came to window treatments, especially since it was bare-Zelch, Zero, NOTHING.  After a little research and youtube-I was inspired and up for the challenge.

 Things you’ll need to get started:

Fabric, measuring tape, wood cut to your specified dimensions, scissors, seamstress ruler, 5/8″ fusible iron on tape, iron, staple gun, glue gun, L brackets, drill and grosgrain ribbon for that punch of color.

With NO SEWING involve this project came together with little time and effort.   Here’s a sample of two different one’s created:

For this first one, I mounted the fabric on the board, stapling the sides first.  I wanted a pleated look in the center so I played around with the fabric to give the illusion, ironed the form, and stapled away.  To really bring out that detail and make the window treatment pop I reached for an orange grosgrain ribbon.

One window is slightly different from the rest, so treated it with a swag balloon look instead.  I started by stapling my sides first, since the window is not as wide as the rest it only allowed for one balloon so I calculated accordingly.

Overall it was fun to create and especially rewarding being able to sit back and enjoy the room now.

Enjoy and thanks for viewing.
