Window Treatment Update, finally!

Hi and good day! Ok, today i'm super excited, i am especially giddy about this post, because not only did i work hard on this, well not too hard actually, but i just love the transformation. i have been obsessed with roman shades for quite sometime, especially bamboo shades. They're coastal, relaxed, super casual, and they add special interest, texture, and character to a window treatment. i have been wanting to get these shades for quite sometime, frankly they were a bit on the high end for me, i know they're not too expensive, but for my budget they were. i have been wanting these shades, forever!!!

i just had to deal with some ugly regular blinds, well, they came with the rental, and i was grateful to have had blinds, but Nolan kept breaking them, and that cord was a hazard. So i always kept them up, just to give me the satisfaction of the blinds being up, just like roman shades go. This is what my poor windows looked like, because the blinds were so not cool, the awesome curtains i picked up a couple months ago, the blinds would not give my gorgeous curtains justice.

Poor Sad Windows

so i went to my momma's house yesterday, because she told me she picked some bamboo shades at the DI (good will) i went to go measure them to see if they would fit, sure enough, they were just perfect!!!

Amazing!!! It was a dream come true!

Now, because the shades didn't come with instructions, luckily the hardware came with it, i didn't know how, or even had a clue on how to install these babies. i am so grateful for youtube and awesome smart window folk, i followed these super easy, and quick instructions on how to install these shades. Depending on what you want, outside or inside installation instructions, here is a quick link for both.

It was sooooo easy! Look how wonderful they turned out!!
I adore them!!!

The sweetest part of this project, was that it was absolutely and completely FREE!!!
Thanks to my momma!
Thanks for stopping by friends!


  1. Your window is way more beautiful than before! The bamboo shades has more character than your previous blinds too. The window area turned out to be more lively and refreshing because of it. Likewise, I find the bamboo shades and the blue print curtains a great combination! :D Good job on this one!

    1. Thank you so much Rene! I really like these shades as well, they make the windows look more expensive. Thank you for your kind compliments :)


  2. I totally agree with Rene! The bamboo blinds look so much better than the normal plastic blinds. The contrast of those shades to the curtains made it look so expensive! :) I love it!

    1. Thank you Roxie!!! How sweet you are! I do think the window treatment definitely makes my windows look more expensive too.
