As you know, I am still working on fixing up our house day by day.  One project that seems to be ongoing is getting window treatments up.  And for anyone that’s been down this road, you know, custom shades are pretty pricey.  I couldn’t find a fabric I liked for our bathroom window for under $250, so I decided to make my own!

For any of you that follow the fabulous design blog of Hannah, you know that I have already made a similar one for the kitchen.  I decided to essentially replicate this same method to keep it nice and relaxed.  The fabric is a Dwell Studio fabric I’ve wanted for a long time, and I snagged two yards of it from fabric.com for $30 with a coupon.  That’s a whole lot better than $250!  I temporarily put up some chocolate-colored ribbon I had lying around, but I may experiment with a more gray/silvery tone to pull out that color in the fabric.

Hope this little bit of DIY inspires you!
