A "before" photo.
A bad "after" photo of the shades in the raised position.
I purchased the material for these shades in 2008. I started on this project by practicing for the front room by making shades for Matt's room. Those were completed in January of this year. I was then ready to begin these shades.
My friend Heidi had extra backing generously donated it to me for this project. That not only helped, it saved me about $35.00. A big thanks to her.
It feels good to have these shades done. Next project? Purchasing curtains for the French Doors in this room and sewing a border onto them using the leftover material from these shades.
