After living in my apartment for two years, I’m making some easy bedroom updates.
Did you catch my post yesterday about the art and mirror that I hung up? I love how those two simple additions bring so much character to the space.
Another area of the room I’m working on is the window.
I think the image above gives you a good idea of just how tiny my bedroom is. It’s a super small and narrow room, but it does have one awesome feature: a huge arching window that lets in a ton of light!
As much as I love this window, it’s posed a few challenges. For one thing, it’s really wide and tall (52 x 60-inches, not including the arch). I’ve looked into finding blinds and shades more than once, but it was hard to find anything to fit the window that didn’t cost a ton of money. As a renter, I just didn’t want to invest a lot of money.
For another thing, the curtains let in a little too much light. They’re great during the day, but early mornings are another story.
When I got the chance to work with Levolor and Lowe’s, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to finally cover this window!
Lowe’s carries tons of Levolor blinds and shades options, but I was especially interested in their Premium Faux Wood Cordless Blinds. These Custom Size Now blinds (only available at Lowe’s) are seriously gorgeous and a major upgrade from the junky metal blinds found in most of my previous apartments (all those bent slats … ugh!).
The blinds look just like wood, but they’re much more affordable … perfect for a renter like myself!
So I brought my trusty project assistant, aka my husband Joel. I actually caught him with a smile on his face, too. He’s usually not quite so happy to be tasked with these projects … ha ha!
The machine is located right in the aisle, and it took the associate less than five minutes to cut my blinds. She didn’t even have to remove the blinds from the box before trimming them.
My plan is to get the blinds installed this weekend. I can’t wait to show you how they look!
What home improvement projects have you worked on lately?
