Budget-friendly roller shades can be beautiful too! We love the jute like texture we installed in our Master Bedroom bay window.
Now, before you get too excited – this post is not my master bedroom reveal. It is the next best thing.
To see our bedroom full reveal, visit this blog post.
Today – I wanted to devote my topic to these oh-so-lovely affordable textured jute-like roller shades from Blindsgalore.com
And a few other details centered around the window.
This dresser/desk, (we call it a “dresk”) is an old, hand-me-down, somebody-save-me piece of furniture.
And perhaps I’ll throw in the details of this DIY Pillow, and yummy, fluffy, texture-y, throw blanket – from Carmel Decor.
I might also mention the sparkly chandelier from Home Depot.
And the $5.00 curtain rod we DIY’ed and painted from a piece of electrical conduit from Home Depot. And the clearance fabric I found at Joanne’s and made 4 curtain panels for $30.00.
But, I think I’ll mostly talk about how much improved our master bedroom is from the BEFORE IMAGE.
And how I feel like a sleeping princess each time I wake (except with 4 kids jumping all over me).
I just hope you’ll check out the rest of the room – there is so much more to talk about 😉
For now, let’s talk a bit more about the roller shades. I had the great honor to be sponsored by Blindsgalore.com for this product, and I am thrilled to introduce you to this specific line of textured jute-like roller shades. They had me hooked the moment I saw them on their site. It is the convenience and affordability of roller shades – and the textured beauty of jute blinds – all in one. They come from the specific line called “Kellie Clements Simply Chic Roller Shades: Textured“.
They come in all sorts of colors and textures, meant to look like the natural fibers from which they are inspired. I choose the “Jute Filigree” variety, which pairs beautifully with the surrounding whites and blues. If you are on the market for blinds, shades, drapery or shutters – I highly recommend checking out blindsgalore.com. From all my research in online ordering for blinds , this site was the most user friendly – hands down. There are so many options, it really can be an overwhelming task to choose the right ones.
I can tell you, these shades are even prettier in person and I am delighted with the look.
This “dresk” was given to us by a neighbor – and gracefully saved by my husband.
It looked like this to start with. (Picture courtesy goes to my husband, who left the clutter in the background and the one year old hand ready to beat the furniture).
I wanted it to take up a little less visual space, and have an added benefit of being able to sit at it and do some reading – and not to mention a few less layers of 100 year old paint jobs. After some handy reconstruction and some horrid paint eating chemicals, he had it ready for me to re-paint to my liking.
I left the top it’s lovely antique wood color, and used Rust-oleum Chalk paint (linen color) for the body.
Now she is a real functional beauty, and only needs a few things on top to take center stage in the bedroom.
Like a plant from the grocery store – on top of some boxwood from the garden – on top of an old box from grandpa’s junk yard.
And of course – THE LAMP.
Graciously provided by Carmel Decor, and could be a total splurge and major statement for any room. (Exact product unavailable for now, but other color options available, HERE).
You could also shop Carmel Decor for blanket throws, like THIS one below.
Throw it in a .75 cent thrift store basket – and you’ve got yourself some high style! To make the pillow cover, I discovered this cotton image, HERE, on pinterest. I used my favorite ink transfer technique I shared HERE. And used the steps HERE to make a pillow cover. I used bleached drop cloth, which I give detailed instructions for HERE.
I think that about covers the details I wanted to discuss in this post.

Thanks for visiting!
As always – I would love your thoughts and opinions! They are so valuable to me. What do you think of the faux jute blinds? Is the lamp too heavy for the space – or do you think it rocks?!! What would you have done to save the dresser? Any questions for me? Feel free to ask!
