Easy DIY Roman Shades

I’m taking my bedroom back. When my husband and I were newlyweds, it started as a nice, clean, orderly room. There was a new bedspread, freshly painted furniture, and light, airy curtains freshly matched for our new life together. Over the past 14 years it has morphed into something completely different. The bedspread has grown old and worn and has been puked on (kids).

All opinions are my own*** Long about oh, an almost exact seven years ago, I found my world completely upended. That nifty two-salary gig my husband and I had been rocking? Gone.
