Introducing my rustic little faux window shades that are perfect for adding a little warmth to a window in a junk styled way.
Great for windows where you desire the sun to shine right in and dont require privacy.
Hang a simple closet dowel inside your window frame...
... glue a liner to a burlap sack and glue to the dowel... ( a liner will keep the sun from penetrating right through the somewhat transparent burlap so you can see those beautiful graphics)
... add a junky little element for a faux pull, install the dowel and youre done!
The edges were slightly frayed on 3 sides.
Gotta love the graphics!
And there you have a perfectly funky little window treatment thats perfect for a busy splashy kitchen.

Not one for traditional window treatments, a recently reclaimed burlap coffee bean sack became my window shade of choice. Perfectly cheap, easy AND junky!

JunkyPeanutButter writes: OMG! Love this!!! I just used some coffee sacks as the "skirt" around some metal shelving you see storing paper and supplies in an office. To this base I added the top piece I had of an old beat up glass-door buffet cabinet from my grand parents cabin to create a potting bench/cabinet on my front porch. Think I will make these curtains for my porch to complete the theme! Posted: 3:44 pm on June 1st
