The No Sew Shade

 If you need a quick, affordable way to add a window covering to your windows, this no sew shade is the way to go!  Our home is on a main road, so privacy is very important.  When I moved into this house almost 5 years ago, I needed something to cover my windows that was cheap and effective.  So I outfitted all of the windows with $10-20 vinyl roller shades. 

 Later I added the fabric curtains, but still liked the privacy the shade offered.  The white vinyl on the shade wasn't working for me and the need for accent color in this room made me think there was a great opportunity!


So, I headed off to my favorite fabric store in Burlington, Nido, and grabbed a fun coral fabric to add some pop to the blues and browns in the room.


I unrolled the shade, cut a piece of fabric to fit and hot glued it on all four sides.  Rolled it back up and hung it right back on the window.  So simple!  I have been thinking about this project for a while now, and also considered using wallpaper which would work well too.

Now to use the scrap fabric for some fun pillows to go on my chairs :)
