I’ve been wanting to share with you how I customized our cheap mini blinds for a while now but it was so difficult to photograph this window that I kept pushing it ahead and ahead. The black walls in our kids’ bathroom swallow all the light and the window is so blown out.
How to dress up cheap aluminum mini blinds

It’s not a mind-blowing idea and has been done before but I still like it. We’ve always had the cheap aluminum mini blinds that you can find at any home improvement store. And while they aren’t the prettiest, they work quite well for me. Since the bathroom was a little budget makeover for our kids (HERE if you missed it), the blinds had to stay cheap too.
- mat black craft ribbon
- white aluminum blinds
- hot glue gun
- (and yarn and wood beads)
That’s all you need. I glued the ribbon to every third aluminum slat, so if you pull the shade up they bunch like a bow.
The pulling string bot a little whimsy with tassels, pom-pom, and wood beads that my daughter and I made. We both love it.

I think it’s perfect for our kids’ bathroom and we spent a minimal amount of dollars and time on this little project.
So how about you? Could you live with cheap aluminum blinds or are you a complete hater?
