My latest custom challenge was making roman shades for this set of french doors in a playroom. The kids had hung on the previous drapes so much the rod had come out of the wall.

Before

So they needed something that would not only be sturdy enough to handle the kids, but also insulate against the afternoon direct sunlight, and create night time privacy.

In the interim, butcher paper had been hung over the windows

The client chose roman shades so the door would be fully functional, could be raised or lowered depending on time of day and hopefully be sturdy enough to take the kids beating if necessary, or at the very least, be raised to a level the kids couldn’t fiddle with.

Shades lowered

All finished!

The fabric they chose is super cute and to help in durability I constructed the shades to velcro to the front of the mounting board. If the kids do hang on the shades, hopefully they’ll just come un-velcroed instead of tearing the hardware off the wall again. Anyway, they turned out really cute.  = )
