When you are making over a room on a teeny budget, sometimes the tough stuff is left for you to do. On this Timeless Farmhouse Kitchen Renovation - Demolition Week, we have had to stretch our DIY skills!

For this bay window, I needed to have the trim fit under the bulk head. Here are the sizes I used.

For the sides, I used 1 x 3 primed trim boards.

To top the framing, I cut the 1 x 3 trim board one inch wider than the side boards.

And finally to cap off the top framing, I cut a 1 x 2 primed trim board one inch wider than the top frame.

Tip: One way to trim costs is to find areas you can cut corners. I didn’t mind the trim on the bottom under the window sill, so I opted to keep that in place and only replace the side and top trim.

Once we had installed the framing, we painted the trim around with a fresh coat of satin in Simply White.

But I wanted a new look for our home. Back at our Almost Farmhouse, we installed some woven shades and loved the look.

But these shades were heavy, pricey and had a cumbersome cord that you had to pull up and down.

So I looked for a more budget-friendly solution and love these that I found!

We added these woven blinds to complete the farmhouse look.

We chose the Cordless Woven Wood Shades in the Winthrop Tortoise color.

First, we started by removing the brackets from the frames.

Then you fit the blinds in place and mark where the brackets go.

Next, you hang the bracket with the screws provided.

We opted for an inside mount, meaning the blinds are inside the window frame.

We predrilled the holes before screwing the brackets in place.

Once the brackets are hung, you can hang your blinds.

As you can see, the guide holes are very wide, making it perfect to adjust the bracket placement.

What I love about these blinds is that the cord mechanism is hidden.

So when you want the blinds drawn, you simply pull down from the bottom of the blinds.

There is no need for cords to get tangled in! When you want to put them back up, you simply push them up into place.

You can always check out my video of how these work.


We installed all three blinds in less than 30 minutes!

In fact – I love these so much that I ordered another set for our Sunroom.

It’s an economical way to add farmhouse pizazz to your home!

  1. That’s a great question, Maggie!

    You are correct, larger windows will cost more. My windows were average size, the largest 36×36 and the smaller 18 x 36, so that helped in keeping the costs lower.

    Another tip is to wait to push that order button until they launch a holiday sale – that’s when they add an extra discount that helps with savings.

    Hope that helps out!

  2. Hi, I just read this whole article and went to the website you ordered these blinds from.
    Just curious how you completed an entire room for under $200 when one 57×46 blind runs around $150?

  3. I would like to know about the shade in the original picture. That’s what drew me to read your blog.

  4. Hi Christina! I have the exact ones linked in the post above. Just click on the blue underlined link and it should direct you to them! Hope that helps!

  5. Hi where did you order the farmhouse blinds from? Cordless woven wood blinds – they make the room look amazing.


  6. Hola ,dónde compraste las persianas de palitos..

  7. Jen,

    I am dying to add these woven shades to the main living areas of our home. You have definitely inspired me to get this project to the top of our to-do list.

    They look amazing in your home!


  8. Hi Jill – my shades have been working great after 2 years. We did have to replace a set immediately after installation when we found one mechanism was a bit off, which the company replaced with no problems. I will say that we don’t pull these shades on a daily basis, so that may be something to consider. However, the shades in my sons rooms are used daily and have held up great! Hope that helps!

  9. Hi. I was wondering how the cordless mechanism has been holding up on these shades now going on 2 years later? Do put the shades up and down a lot? TIA!
