I had decided a few weeks ago that if I’m going to pin things on Pinterest, I should start using some of them. I’m not one of those people who pins everything she likes. That is fine too but I would never look at them again really. I pin things that I think will be useful, and I only have a few things that I pinned just because I really, really liked them. Anyway, so the weekend before last I tackled my second Pinterest project: Roman Shades.
The reason this project was so important is, as you can see, the cats have been destroying our blinds! They broke off a lot of the little plastic ends and our house was looking a little disheveled. I needed to do something about it!
I enlisted the help of my mom and we got started. This project just needs a set of blinds, fabric, fabric glue, and scissors and you are ready to go. The first one was tricky but we had the hang of it by the second one.
We were so happy with the finished product! Of course, now we have to see how these stand up to the little fur-terrors.
I don’t think the shades have a chance….
We also did some sewing projects my mom and I had sitting around. I made these new curtains for our kitchen:
And that’s it for now! I forgot to take pictures of our other projects like the cute pillows my mom made me or the sundresses she made for my nieces. Look out tomorrow for a post full of baby birdies, chickens, and the kitties!
