Say you have some old mini blinds that have broken pieces or you’re just bored with your plain white ones — there’s a perfect way to recycle them instead of throwing them away. In this video tutorial, you’ll learn how to make custom window treatments on a budget by turning mini blinds into pretty Roman shades, all on your own.

These shades are operational like normal blinds, but much prettier. Roman shades are a type of window covering used to block out the sun.

They’re different from standard window shades in that they stack up evenly when being opened — but when opened, they are visibly smooth, not bumpy or ribbed like typical vertical shades or blinds.

Here are the tools you’ll need:

  • White faux wood blinds
  • Thick upholstery fabric
  • Pencil
