To begin with, we have a small apartment with windows facing the sunny side. If there is no sun in the morning, then the house is quite comfortable. But after lunch, especially in hot weather, it becomes unbearably hot. The air heats up from the window glass and there is nothing to breathe. I found a way out of this situation and decided to make blinds with my own hands from ordinary vinyl wallpapers, which remained after the repair. Blinds from the wallpaper perfectly protect the apartment from the scorching sun and if you close them in time, then in the evening it will be quite comfortable to be at home. In this case, there will be no complete blackout, because in fact it is paper. So, first we measure the width of the window and if the wallpaper roll is too wide, then we cut it along the edge. The length of the cut itself will be slightly more than the height of the glass part of the window (approximately one and a half times more). Next you need to make a kind of "accordion" (see photo). It is not necessary to make a “harmonica” small, but it will also be very broad too.The most optimal fold width option is about 4 centimeters.
In process folding the "accordion", make sure that it does not lead to the side. You need to navigate around the edges and do each fold carefully.
Now take double-sided tape and glue it to the top of our blinds.
Next you need to make four holes through the entire harmonica when folded. I did it using a conventional drill (see photo.)
Now take two cuts of the rope and pass it through the holes (see photo ).
We attach clips to the lower ends of the rope. Such clips can be bought in any sewing department. They will perform the role of fixatives in order to be able to raise and lowerour blinds.
Our blinds are almost ready. It remains only to fix them on the window. To do this, we open the second surface of the tape and gently glue the blinds to the frame.
That's it! Blinds are ready. This is a fairly economical way that does not take long to get rid of the scorching sun.
