I've been thinking about this for about a year now -- and I'm kicking myself in the pants for not getting this done sooner. Really -- I only think about it when I need it -- which is every other day -- so you would think I would have had it completed by now. It was so DANG easy - the hardest part was changing the drill bit to accommodate the screw head I was using.
As a working designer and teacher it's necessary for me to take great photos of my work -- even if it's for photo approval -- always put your best foot forward, right?
I've tried so many different things -- but this by FAR is the best, easiest and fastest way to create a neutral backdrop for my small projects -- without having some weird tent to pop-up or find a place to store when I'm not using it.
I simply went to Lowe's and purchased a Levolor shade -- 36" wide -- and installed it underneath my shelf using the additional brackets they had close-by.
When I don't need it I can tuck it up around the roller and keep it out of the way -- but when I have things to photograph -- pull it down and arrange my projects on it. How wonderful, simple and FANTASTIC -- oh and did I mention it cost less than $10.00?? That's the OTHER plus!
Make sure you get the right package of brackets or you'll be back at Lowe's getting the right ones. These are for hanging INSIDE a window frame!
Well, that's all for today -- hope you have a GREAT day and thanks for stopping by!
