Pottery Barn Inspired – Lovely Ribbon On Roman Shades DIY

Make those boring Roman shades into something fabulous by adding ribbon DIY style.  This project is no-sew and doesn’t take a lot of your time.  The ribbon gives that window a little more pop.  If you don’t like the ribbon look try using fabric paint.  Thanks to Life Love Larson for the idea.

I have recently been putting our office/homework space together, and several of the projects are DIY (which is the way I like it)! When it came to window treatments for the space, I decided to work with what we already had, and simply add a little something to make them pop. Cue my DIY Ribbon Trimmed Roman Shades (no-sew too)!

We purchased some inexpensive white roman shades from JCP online several years ago, and two of them found their way to the office space. Each roman shade was about $25. The windows in this space have pretty millwork around them, so I knew I didn’t want to cover that. I think roman shades add just the right amount of light coverage with a softened edge. But…the plain white just wasn’t doing it for me!

I decided, after finding this inspiration image, that I would trim the shades with black grosgrain ribbon for a more custom look. Here is the inspiration photo from Pottery Barn.
