Trellis Pelmet Shade

Remember when I turned into a crazy person and made my own trellis fabric?   I am pretty happy with how it turned out.  (The farther away you are the better it looks.)    
{please excuse my horrible photography skills.  It is nearly impossible for me to take a picture of my window and not have it turn out dark.}

`

I used Jenny’s tutorials to make the pelmet and the roman shade underneath.  I trimmed the pelmet with blue ribbon.  It makes it look finished and much better.  The roman shade is just white. I might add some navy ribbon down the sides.

So there you have it.  I made an Imperial Trellis shade using freezer paper, spray paint, white fabric, foam core and duck tape.

    I am so glad I found your site. I am just embarking on a full house redecorating venture and need all the inspiration I can get. After ten years the old lady needs some lipstick, referring to the bungalow of course : ) Love your blog!

    Congrats, it looks great! I think it would be a nice touch to add ribbon down the sides of the shade too!
