Before the blinds went up, the window looked like this. This is the only picture I could find, forgot to take the before pic!
This is midway through installation, excuse the blurry iPhone picture. Although I didn't do much of the installing, except for handing over a nail or screwdriver, the process was pretty simple. So simple that we didn't even look at the install instructions.
And here is the final look. I love the texture it adds to the room.
They have a bit of a blue/green color in them that didn't show on the Overstock site. However, thankfully I have those colors in this room so they work. These shades also come in a darker bamboo, which I may order for our guest room. Overall, I am very happy with these shades: good price, pretty, and easy to install. Anyone have any other suggestions for good bamboo shades?
