{Cheating} Roman shades

Here's the finished product, I really love how it came out! Skilled sewers avert your eyes, I sprayed and hot glued my way to roman shade bliss. Yep, its true! The fabric is from Ballard and the bamboo roman shade Home Depot. I simply cut out the fabric, spray glued the shade and stuck it on. Then took edging fabric and hot glued the ends to cover up frays. Since Im so short on time and energy lately, this project really fit the bill literally and figuratively. I would have taken pictures during the process, but I really didn't know if it would work!! One shade down, four to go I'll snap how-to pictures next round if you'd like some.

Wow! This looks so great! I love the fabric too. Thanks so much for pointing me to this post. I have like 20 windows(!) so I don't know if I have the patience to do it but it certainly is making me think. Thanks, Maria! xoxo
