How-to: Patterned Wallpaper Shade
- roller shade (with wood roller)
- staple gun
- cloth tape
Tear off the entire vinyl shade from its wood roller and slide out the bottom rail.
Use the shade as a template to cut a new rectangle out of the wallpaper, adding 1 1/2 inches in length.
Attach one end of the wallpaper to the roller with a staple gun (make sure to use a shade with a wood roller so you can staple into it).
Fold the other end of the wallpaper under 1 1/2 inches to form a pocket, securing it with cloth tape (the kind used for first aid works well).
Slide the bottom rail in the pocket and attach a ring pull to the back. The weight of the rail will keep the shade hanging straight.
