Vertical wooden blinds


If someone never saw that ceiling then they haven't been here long

That will look very nice & match up with the rest of the room

Vertical wooden blinds


you mean this one? My $40 (300 sq. ft.) Homemade Birch/Walnut Ceiling
ya never know. only 2,505 views so far, and most of those were me.....

gonna sleep on this one and decide the awning in the morning i think.
unless someone gives me a better idea tonight, i think i'll go with the oak.
it'll match and build right into the casement.
but the walnut would really tie in the slats below it visually.... hmmmmmm........

The living room woodwork looks sharp. Lots of detail!

I'll throw another idea in here. How about making the awning out of oak, but trim the top and bottom of it with walnut.

Or

Make it from oak with walnut trim on top and scallop the bottom.

Whew! all this thinking is making me dizzy! lol

Gosh, remember back in the late 70s early 80s when those vertical blinds were all the rage. Every tract house on the east coast had those but-ugly things.

gee, you'd think with a nick like retro, you'd LIKE that sort of thing! lol
here's what i'm thinking of doing with the awning. the slats will get cut to size and attached tomorrow after the glue dries.
any suggestions? opinions? keep it? change it? it's not permanent yet.

thanks,

DM

She liked oak the best.... all done....

Wow. If you decide you don't like that look, send it to me. I'll even pay shipping.

thanks Kap, but the wife loves it, so it stays.
i didn't like the (somewhat stained) rubber handle on the rod to turn the slats, so i drilled a chunk of walnut and finished it off like this. good ol' PL adhesive... heh heh

How did I miss this one!

Danger, it looks awsome. I love it. I really hated the fabric ones, when they were the rage, but I really like what you have done.

LOVE, the handle.
