We’re over living in a fish bowl and have window treatments on the top of our list. The windows in our great room are beautiful– my favorite in the house. I wanted to add some warmth and texture to the room and had envisioned bamboo shades. I had checked out some Home Decorators options available at Home Depot, and was pretty excited when they approached me and asked if I was interested in collaborating.
I selected a beautiful finish– the Bamboo Driftwood Flatware Shade— and after installing the first one realized they needed to be shortened. No one likes a lot of bulk at the bottom of a shade. By shortening it, the shade has a custom, finished look.
Anytime you’re working with a material like bamboo, it’s a little intimidating. My mind can think of a gazillion things that could go wrong. Good news is shortening it isn’t one of them.
I’ve broken down exactly how to shorten a bamboo shade in video form because some things are just easier to see in video than in print. Am I right, people?

The shades are one layer of window treatment I have planned for this room– can’t wait to show you the next level.
