Now that I'm back I'm not a big fan of the fence but I'm not sorry that all the trees are gone as they were taking over my driveway. I am sorry though that the tall trees are gone that use to block out the horrible West sun.
Let me just say, that I am glad we didn't have a typical Queensland Summer last year.
I quickly ran out and picked up some ready-made blockout curtains which have done the job beautifully but they really aren't what I wanted, not the look I wanted.
I took one of the curtains down to a local curtain shop to ask if they could be made into a roman blind that would fit better above the lounge.
Now I can sew and I have made roman blinds in the past but this time I thought I might see if someone else could make then (it was all about time for me). All I can say is that I will now make the time!
I was surprised at the price of $1,100 for 3 blinds. Is it just me or is that a little pricey?
I've done a little research online and found a great how-to that I plan to tackle.
I'll let you know how I got... first I have to pick up some blockout fabric.
