I didnt even make the shade yet an am annoyed. No screws were included to mount hinges. No instructions included to mount hinges. No instructions on how to cut the roller without chewing it up. I afraid to start this project! Hate wasting time...
An intelligent answer - no BS - which makes a pleasant chngae
I really like the way the shades turned out...really beautiful. I used shantung fabric and made a scalloped edge. The only real trouble I had was during the fusing process. This took a good amount of time but I finally got them fully fused. The next time I will have them fused at the dry cleaners. The instructions for the hardware wasn't included with the shades...I found that information on the internet.
We need 4 more. Please make available soon!
I purchased this for shade in my bathroom 7 years ago. I close it every night so it's gotten lots of use- and it still works like new. Was a great investment- highly recommend. Was easy to make & install. I didn't need it so long, so cut shade fabric shorter & attached to roller with tape. Hint- If shade becomes too loose to roll up- just remove from brackets & roll up tight & re-install- good as new! :)
This thing was trouble from the word go. There were vague instructions that said nothing about how to mount the shade. "Fusing" was a bumpy nightmare. I have done his process with a different brand, which I could not find and it came out great. But this was a total disaster. We went ahead and drilled million holes to mount it, so now it s up, but I would not reccommend this, unless you are ready to use your sewing machine, as I had to.
This product was easy to use and the finished appearance was pleasing but I am having some difficulties with raising/lowering the shade effectively. I used a similar product from JoAnn's a few years back that was still DIY but had a rope set up to raise and lower the shade and I liked it better. There was no trying to get the spring load "just so" to effectively raise and lower it. Anyone have any suggestions as to where to find the rope kind again? thanks!
I have used two of these kits, both times inserting the ends into a 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe 78 inches long. I did have to insert a long 1/1 dowel into the tube to keep the PVC from sagging in the center. Used Duct tape to fasten the fabric to the PVC--you do need two people to do this straight. Beautiful results and both have been up/down everyday for 5 years.
