This past weekend one of our projects was to finally get shades up in the office (we had to yank down the ugly ones that came with the room, yuck). I wanted to do roman shades, we looked around and eventually found some we liked in the slightly odd sizes we needed. However I wanted to dress them up a little. I bought some 7/8" black grosgrain ribbon, and used the sewing machine to attach them to the shades, with Mike's help.
We both really love how they turned out!
It really added a lot to the shades, which is great since I didn't want to add any other window treatments in the office.
