I got a blackout roller shade at The Home Depot and had it cut to size for the window in my daughter’s room. Her window has a window bench, so I thought it would be cute to put a chandelier on the shade. I used this wall decal from Blik. It worked for a while but because the kids sat in the cubby all the time, eventually they picked at it. It wasn’t long before something needed to be done.
I decided to paint it on.
Now, a smart mommy would have traced it first. That didn’t occur to me until it was too late. Fortunately, I could kind of see where the glue had been, so I used that as a rough guide.
I made it work. Here are some pictures.
Here’s how it turned out. I would highly recommend using a wall decal on a roller shade. And if that doesn’t work, paint works too.
Her room is different now. It’s blue and gray with black and white accents. No drapes. But we still have the roller shade with the chandelier. It’s functional and stylish and has stood the test of time,so I thought I would share the idea.
