Almost Fabulous {A Cottage Mini-Update}

Mom and I did a little DIY roller shade for my bathroom window in one of my favorite fabrics, the signature print by Stone Textile.  Unfortunately we forgot to take note of the orientation of the spring roller and the fabric is now backwards.  Not a big deal, I just have to take it off and re-glue it.  In the meanwhile, its been sitting like this for several weeks.  Just keepin’ it real.  Life, home, decor isn’t always perfect.  But, I think I when get around to turning it around it will be pretty fabulous.

PS- I waterproofed the fabric, because this window sits in my shower.  I’ll pull together a full post once I finish the shade!

  1. God…that so sounds like something I would do…..

      Oh, Celine, there are many more where this came from! Thinking about starting a “keeping it real” regular post as most areas of my house are painfully unfinished.

    I would totally do that! Love the fabric and how great it will look when you re-do!

  5. It looks fab now. And I await with bated breath the tutorial/full post. I shall be taking careful notes.
