BEFORE - Plain chocolate brown leather blinds. After living with them for about 6 years I got bored and turned them into this.
AFTER - By stencilling a pale gold lace pattern onto them. At night they look transparent during the day they look like a lace pelmet.
This seems to be a Helen Morris day as the lace stencil is from The Stencil Library as mentioned in the post below. You can buy a lace stencil here if you fancy a bit of pimping yourself.
