First, thank you so much for your sweet responses yesterday here and on social media about the new homepage. I’m so excited for the upgrades to this page as well!
On to today’s project: DIY Roman Shades From Blinds. If your house is anything like mine was when I moved in, it is filled with blinds. I personally don’t really love traditional blinds. To replace them all would have cost a fortune so I set out to recycle what we already had in place by altering some of our existing blinds and making them into functioning roman shades. And here is the best part about this project: it’s easy. And it’s cheap. Ok, that’s two things. But they are both really good things.
So let’s get to it! Here is exactly how I made roman shades from my blinds, in video form, naturally.

I also used this technique for my laundry room roman shade. I love how they turned out.
Completely off topic but if you know me, you know I have a great love of a certain sale this time of year. It’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale time! I’ve been going every year since I was 10 and it was a big deal I missed the first day of presale for Haven. But I have since made up for my absence. Here are a few of the things I picked up this year.
Can we just talk about these boots? They never ever go on sale. I’m obsessed.
These jeans are perfect. I hate low rise jeans, and these fit amazingly well.
I love a modest dress. I picked up this one in the blue color and it’s such a great fit.
This sweater may be the most comfortable thing I picked up.
It’s not often you find wedge boots that are both comfortable and cute. These boots fit the bill.
Happy Wednesday! Half way to the weekend, babes.
