Project 19: Shade supplies

May 11, 2011

I was supposed to meet someone to collaborate on my roman shade project tonight, but a busy day and the first hints of a cold kind of wore me out. Instead I went shopping for shade supplies and we’ll meet on Thursday.

I plan on following the instructions in this step-by-step guide to making roman shades. I already had my fabric, so tonight I just had to pick up thread, plastic rings, and nylon cord from the fabric store, and a 1×2 and dowels from the hardware store. I was unable to find dowels that were the right length for my window (most were half the size) so I ended up getting screen moulding¬†instead. It’s the right size, just flat instead of round (and cheaper).

While at the hardware store I also picked up a curtain rod, brackets, and finials, so if I can get all of my sewing done in the second half of the week I should be able to hang everything right away.

Can I do it? Stay tuned to find out.
