I have about two yards of this fabric that I originally ordered for the nursery, but then I changed my mind about the room's color scheme. It matches our bedroom great, though.
And I do need some kind of window treatment for a little privacy. I'd love to make some roman shades, but I have six windows and just two yards of fabric. So I'm thinking about maybe making some pelmet boxes out of the fabric (I think I can stretch it that far), and then adding inexpensive roller shades underneath. Jenny over at Little Green Notebook made these adorable pelmet boxes out of foam core - aren't they beautiful? Jenny is a DIY genius!
I think pelmets would be a nice look on our windows, and they would hide the roller shades except when they're down. And as for the shades themselves, I think they might look nice embellished with a little ribbon. A while ago I bought ten rolls of blue-green grosgrain for $1/roll, and this just might be the perfect place for it.
Something like this:
Any other suggestions to stretch 2 yards of fabric (and not spend a ton)?
