Thank you to the wonderful people from The Shade Store for partnering with me on our Master Bedroom makeover!

Well, here we are friends – halfway through the One Room Challenge from Calling It Home and progress is coming along! So this week is all about my windows and how I dressed them up with Farmhouse Woven shades!

Farmhouse Woven Shades

(Some affiliate links are provided below. Full disclosure here.)

Standard Woven Wood Shades in the Fair Harbor Price Group A under the ‘Bamboo+Grass” section. . UPDATE: Looks like they’ve renamed the colors – ours is REED. Scroll down for a step by step guide on how to purchase these exact shades.

When we had our shades installed for our Family room, I was amazed at how beautiful they looked and I knew I wanted them for our bedroom.

Farmhouse living room filled with woven shades and vintage furniture.

Years ago, when we lived in a rental, the landlord had cheapy blinds in the windows. They looked awful! I knew that we had to invest in quality blinds and that they would last longer making them more cost effective.

We got these gorgeous Farmhouse Woven shades from the wonderful people at The Shade Store.

The window sizes were exactly the same as the Family Room, so I knew how they would look. We went for the Standard Woven Wood Shades in the Fair Harbor-2 color. UPDATE: Looks like they’ve renamed the colors – ours is REED.

So for our large picture window, we ordered the shades with multiple shades on one rod. But I was concerned that the weight of a single shade would be difficult to raise and lower with our large window.

In addition to that, I loved that it gives us the option to raise or lower one side at a time if we’d like!

The helpful customer service rep was so kind to assist me with the best options for my windows. Since she recommended the continuous loop cord, which is a silver chain that maintains a consistent length, it is easier to operate larger shades.

I just love the weave on these shades! It is so beautiful!

I left my curtain rods in place from my previous panels, but knew I had to be budget smart for the draperies. So I reused the old curtain panels by simply removing the blue silk and replaced them with twin white flat sheets.

Don’t they look so nice against those beautiful Farmhouse Woven shades?

It was such an easy DIY – just an afternoon, an iron and some stitch witchery.

Closet Progress

So to not leave you hanging with suspense – the progress on the closet is coming along too!

Finally, we finished the install on the floors with left over scraps from our Hardwood install years ago.

So we have yet to fill the holes and seal them, but progress is progress!

Trent came up with a great idea to install a mirror case in his closet, so that build has been a little side project, but so much fun!

But one last thing to share this week is how I transformed our ordinary ceiling fan into something extraordinary!

  1. Hey Rachel – I just spent some time trying to find these as well with no luck. It looks like those are no longer offered. Recently, I have purchased through Affordable Blinds and Blinds Direct. They don’t look exactly the same, but offer the same beautiful aesthetic!

  2. Oh this window treatment is JUST what I’m looking for in our newly renovated master suite! I am having a hard time finding those shades, though, even with the 2021 updated info. So far customer service has not been helpful. Any guidance would be tremendously appreciated!

  3. Hi Martha – yes this couches came with the slipcovers. They are from IKEA and offer lots of different options for slipcovers when purchasing.

  4. Hello! Can you tell me if you had slipcovers made for your sofas, or did they come already with the look of slipcovers in your living room?

  5. Can I ask what the paint color is in the main picture? Looks like a nice neutral color

  6. Hi Amanda – the fabric is just cotton. It’s their cheapest option, I believe around $5 or $6 dollars a sheet. Hope that helps!

  7. Love this look, absolutely beautiful. Wondering what fabric flat sheet you used – I’m seeing a lot of microfiber and just wasn’t sure if that’s the best look for curtains !? Thanks much.

  8. I can’t seem to find the farmhouse blinds.
    I went to the site but no lucky.
    What am I doing wrong
    Thank you

  9. Hi Martina – that’s a great question! Looks like they have renamed them! I used the REED color for my home. Hope that helps!

  10. Hi Gina! That’s a great question! I used twin sheets and didn’t trim the width at all. To create the loop for the rod, I simply stitched over the end with my sewing machine, but I have used iron fusing or stitch witchery before as well if sewing isn’t your thing. If you have tall ceilings, you can buy the long twin sheets to extend the length if needed. Hope that helps!

  11. I’m interested in how you made the white curtains out of flat sheets, they look great with the shades! Thanks

  12. Hello, is it the first on second color in standard woven shades in Fair Harbor options? I can’t tell from the online pic on affordable blinds

  13. Hi Jennifer! The link just takes you to all options not the one that you have. Can you tell me which material/color shade this is that you have?

  14. Can you tell me what color/where you got the blinds in your dining area in Kitchen?
