DIY Faux Roman Blind

Hi! Hope you had a great weekend!!!

Today I'll be showing you how I made a Faux Roman Blind.

I had 2 eyelet curtains from our previous home. I used the 1 to reupholster our coffee table. The other 1 came in handy when I wanted to make a blind/valance for the dining room window. 

Let's get started...


I spread the curtain on the dining room table. My husband measured the holes in the wall and put some screws into the wooden plank - what a sweetie! 

I cut off the eyelets to just use the fabric. It was super easy to use, because the seams were already there. My kind of project ;-)

Measure the window. Mark and cut the fabric to the window's measurements, leave quite a bit for seam allowance.


I used the staple gun to secure the one end of the fabric to the wooden plank. I left the screws in the plank so that it won't be visible from the front.

 I secured the fabric to the rest of the top of the plank. I folded the corners in and stapled it secured. I didn't really care to do it neatly as this side will face the wall...

Next I 'seamed' the left and right side of the blind. I used the existing seam as a guideline. I used Bostik's No-Sew Glue, it's so easy to use. I just put a little on, wait a few minutes and 'seam' the fabric.  I did the same with the bottom seam.

And that's how easy it is to make your own faux roman blind!!

Enjoy your week!!
