Wow Shawn, those are some great ideas! I never would have thought of decorating the window shades, I especially love the cut out and tissue paper ideas!

In my son's room they had mini blinds but no drapes. I didn't want to buy any, yet I had a top sheet that was brand new that he never uses. It matched his decor and was a nice sturdy sheet, and I DON'T SEW, so I cut the sheet in half, trimmed the ends to the proper length, and used permanent fabric glue and glued the sides and ends to create drapes. Then I used the scraps that I had trimmed off to make pull backs. I bought a few big colorful buttons and hand sewed those on to the pull backs. Here's a pic!
