One of my most favourite DIYs ever is covering black out shades / blinds with fabric! It’s such an easy way to make a practical window covering look so much prettier. Now that it’s summertime, kids (and adults!) need their rooms darker to sleep, so here’s a fabulous DIY solution.

How to make a fabric covered black out shade - no sew!

I’m also giving you a little video peek into one of our most recent projects – turning our old “garage house” into a cute little guest house for our summer guests. Have a look:

Special thanks to for supplying the gorgeous fabric for this project! I’m in love!


  1. I love this. I wanted to do this but never looked it up. The blind and bedroom are beautiful! Someone posted a link to your website on Facebook in answer to a question about baby shoes. So glad they did and I found your wonderful site

  2. Wow – the room is beautiful! And I’m so thankful for this roller curtain idea, which I’m thinking of doing for my bay window. Can you tell me where you found the roller curtain? The ones I’m finding online are pretty pricey, especially if I’m going to just cover them up… and I need 5! Thanks so much!
