After our recent kitchen remodel, I decided the current window treatments just didn’t “flow” anymore so I started the quest for new ones. I originally wanted to do a bamboo shade but ended up not being happy with the ones I brought home. So I came up with something else…..
Yep, that is a bamboo table runner, and here’s the best part:
Only $5.99!! The inexpensive roller bamboo shades were $30.00 and probably double that for the roman shade type, and I need at least two. This table runner happened to be the exact length of my window. So hubby screwed a 1”x2”x6’ piece of wood to the window frame.
And then just stapled the table runner right to it!
I colored over the staples with a black marker and you can’t even see them now.
So I need opinions…..I have 3 more of these table runners, one of which I need to use for the other smaller window. I’m not sure if I’m liking the straight across look on this window. I really don’t want it to look like I slapped a table runner up there.
So should I use one of the other table runners and combine it to make some pleats or something? I hung it on the inside of the window because that’s how I will have to do the other window since it butts up against the cabinets. So if I make it longer should I hang it on the outside of the frame?
P.S. Stay tuned for an EXTRA SPECIAL giveaway coming up in the next couple of weeks…..here’s a hint: it has something to do with these windows!
