I now have my new roman blinds up in the garden room! I have used blind kits for the first time - from Merrick and Day - and I'm quite pleased with them. They did assume that you already knew how to use them - the only instructions, such as they were, were in Spanish and it wasn't entirely self-explanatory, but I muddled through.

I have enough fabric left over for seat cushions but I don't think I'll be doing those very soon.

Flipping heck they are so gorgeous @Greybird.  I like the way the woodwork is finished off at the bottom.

Really nice work there.  I also like the way the bottom of the window frame turns ... it sort of reminded me of turning a binding.  :laughing:

Love the zebras in the fabric.

@Greybird Its like you've extended your garden into your garden room!  Perfect choice of fabric.  I echo the other compliments on the lovely window sill/frame. :loveit:
