Turn basic roller shades into stylish window treatments by simply adding decorative trim.Janell Beals, Isabella & Max Rooms
Select roller shades, decorative shade pulls and trim. Attach pulls to center point of bottom shade edge.
Lay trim on shade and cut to size, leaving one inch excess on each side.
Brush fabric glue onto back side of upholstery trim. Tip: We used rick-rack but any similarly lightweight trim would work.
Position trim at desired height along bottom edge of shade, brush glue on remaining length of trim and attach to shade.
Check distance of trim from bottom edge of shade to ensure level placement before glue dries. Once you're satisfied with placement, press trim firmly onto shade to ensure glue adheres properly.
Cut off excess trim leaving approximately 1/2-inch selvage at each side of shade. Apply glue to back side of trim selvage; turn under and press selvage firmly onto reverse side of shade.
Repeat above steps to apply additional layers of trim. Tip: Consider using more than one style and color of trim for a creative, custom look.
Using a screwdriver, attach hardware included with roller shades to window frame and hang shades.
