She couldn't handle looking at her boring old blinds any longer, so she found the scissors, cut the blinds, and this is what she did. They now look amazing!

Pull-cord blinds are something that can be found in just about every home. When you go to buy a home, you will often find this type of blind, and when you decide to sell the home, the same blinds will probably be there. Unless you take it upon yourself to break the cycle and hang something else.

This kind of blinds are such a hassle. The cords you use to pull them open and closed always end up getting tangled together, the slats are extremely easy to break, and they are really nothing fancy or nice to look at.

But most of the time we decide to just stick with what we have because replacing them is quite expensive.

You can upgrade to shutters, which are great if you have the money for it.

So, most of us will continue to use our blinds and try to avoid the job of dusting them for as long as we can handle it, by just pretending that they don't exist.

But there is no longer a reason to do that. There is a really easy way to use the blinds you have and upgrade them to ROMAN SHADES without having to drain your bank account.

All you need to make these amazing shades are the blinds off your windows, an upholstery fabric that you would like hanging in your window, mod podge, clothespins, scissors, and an iron!

You will begin this project by laying your blinds flat on the floor. With your scissors, you will cut the ladder strings that are on both the right and left sides of the blinds. The ladder strings are what connect all of the blinds to each other.

The slats should be separated with seven inches of space between them. You will need enough of the slats to cover the window, but you will not use all of the slats from the blind.

With the slats that you will not be using, you should snap the ends off. By doing this, you will not have to cut any additional strings to get the slats out.

The slats that you will be using will be attached to the string. Take the string and slats and spread them out with the fabric you choose underneath them.

The fabric will be longer than the slats, so the edges should all be folded over the slats and glued down with the mod podge.

Once everything has been glued down, you will want to secure all of the folds with your clothespins to make sure it stays in place until the glue is dry.

Once the glue has dried, you can remove the clothespins and hang up your new roman shades the same way you had taken them down.

You may be surprised at how amazing they look and how much money you saved!
