Maybe not quite a window shade but more of a window decoration.  I made this using some wooden trim, nails, black paint, vellum (paper) and a little math.  I've got two of them in my asian inspired dining room and plan on making another for the kitchen.  Now I've just got to get a little more Craftsterized to take down the wall that sepateres the two...

;o)

WOW! that is so super awesome. Is it just propped up in the window frame?  And what size paper did you use?

That is AMAZING!  I have a Asian/Oriental themed dinning room/living room and have been trying to figure out what to do with my windows.  I think I just might see if I can do that, or something like it even!!

How did you mount it onto the window?  If you don't mind me asking.

I pondered a long time on what to do for window treatments!  Fabric curtains just didn't seem right.  The top of the frame has two rings screwed into it to hang it and there are two hooks I screwed into the top of my window, too.  If you look closely you can see them.  I suppose you could prop it up if you wanted to and didn't have pets and children that would knock it down.  I used the largest sized vellum (2' x3'?) I could find at Pearls (an Art supply store in Fort Lauderdale).  I had to hide a seam behind one of the wooden strips.

Brilliant way to hang it!  I live in an apartment, so that would be a great way, not too permenant and all... lol   And I do have a cat, so proping it up would have been out of the question.  He loves his windowsills.

what adhesive did you use? 

P.S. I have been trying to do a folding screen with bamboo paper but it is so finnicky... why didn't I think of using vellum?!?! ( Embarrassed duh!) What a great idea!  Smiley

Actually, the vellum is being held on by staples!  It could definitly be on there better but I haven't had any problems with it yet!
