I've been making a few easy bedroom updates this month. Everything has been done on a tight (i.e., non-existent) budget, using items I already own. Check out my "new" art.
My one purchase was new blinds. I finally got them hung and can't wait to show them off!
I was so excited to finally find affordable blinds that fit my large bedroom window. Once I got the blinds home though, I have to admit that I was a little intimidated by the installation process.
Thankfully, I needn't have worried. The blinds came with clear, step-by-step directions.
My only challenge was due to the window itself, which is wedged into the corner. After a tight squeeze with my screwdriver though, I got the brackets installed, and it was smooth sailing.
Here's are my new blinds ... I'm in love!
Yes, I installed these blinds myself! It's that easy.
Do you remember reading about my shopping trip? I chose to go with Levelor's Custom Size Now Faux Wood Cordless Blinds, which are only available at Lowe's.
They were the perfect choice for my large bedroom window, because the Lowe's associate cut them to my exact dimensions for free while I waited. It seriously took less than five minutes.
The blinds are cordless, and that's definitely my favorite feature.
All you have to do to open and close them is push up or pull down. How cool is that?
Not to mention, with no dangling cords, they're safer for pets and kids. They look better, too. Tangled cords, and the resulting crooked blinds, are the bane of every renter's existence ... no more!
There's also an exclusive Lightmaster feature, which increases privacy and light control and makes the blinds easier to clean. My usual weekend plan to sleep in is now that much easier!
Now that my blinds are installed, I'm planning a few more changes.
These pillows are next.
I'll be keeping most of them, but I'm going to turn an old cashmere sweater into a pillow cover.
My plan is to add a few pom poms once I sew the cover.
I love making easy bedroom updates like this. It's amazing how little changes can have such a huge impact.
How about one more look at my gorgeous new blinds? Did I mention that I installed them myself (ha ha)?
