Steal this Idea*: Ribbon on Rollar Shades

Its Friday (yippee!) - time for another Steal this Idea* feature - a tiny show of appreciation for a well executed tutorial.

Today's idea is actually a two-fer of cheap and easy ways to elevate affordable store bought roller shades into tasteful decor. If you are a regular reader, you know how Im all about the cheap window treatments already but these two techniques are far more simple and classic.

The first comes from Elisa of What the Vita who added a gorgeous touch of orange to roller shades and took them to a whole new level. (I did something similar a while back in my guestroom but I like Elisa's version much better)

See what I mean? Read the whole how to over at What the Vita.

And the second is from a blog I've been reading since the very beginning and just happened to be the very same that inspired Elisa in the first place. None other than Janell of Isabella & Max Rooms. She used some simple rick rack to add a little pizzazz to her daughters room.

Read all about it over at Janell's place.

postscript: *When I say steal, I really mean borrow nicely and give proper credit!

**If you have an idea/tutorial you would like me to consider for a feature, email me. I'd love to see!
