A length of wallpaper is all it takes to turn a plain roller shade into a work of art -- complete with its own frame. Showcase a very special piece, a favorite vintage paper, or a remnant. You can tie the room together with a pattern that echoes an existing motif, or build a head-to-toe look by using the same paper that's on the walls.
A reverse roll-shade (meaning a shade that rolls from front) works best. Ask for remnants at a wallpaper store for this project.
