Tonight while I was doing my weekly perusing of my fellow RH Bloggers' updates, I was inspired by Steve + Erica's post about their blinds. There has been a long debate at my house as to whether or not window coverings were really necessary (after all we will only ever have one neighbor and the lot next to us is vacant for the foreseeable future). Once I priced out the expense, the hubby was definitely against hiring someone to install the roman shades I so desired.
Sooooo that left me with one option.....install them myself! I would rate myself as above average in the "handiness" department. I'm no Sgt. Rich, Steve + Erica or Thomas, but I can operate a drill and screwdriver well enough to install some shades....right?????
Turns out that the roman shades I purchased from Home Depot were very easy to install (about 10-15 minutes per window). I chose the DesignView brand because they come in an array of colors and had lots of sizes in stock. The only tools required to install were: (1) drill with 1/16th bit; (2) screwdriver; and (3) pencil (to mark holes for drilling). All the other necessary hardware is included.
Take a look at my handy work...
