DIY Roman Shades by Repurposing Faux Wood Mini Blinds.

The variety of window furnishings available can be overwhelming but sometimes all you want is something simple and pretty. Most of us have or have had window mini blinds but if you’re looking for a new look for your room, repurposing mini blinds into roman shades is a snap.

In this helpful video by Better Homes and Gardens, you can follow step-by-step instructions to make your own DIY roman shades! I love to repurpose items instead of throwing them away and this DIY project breathes new life into any pair of mini blinds.
