So that roman shade I made late last week?

I used the blinds that came out of the kitchen window. Fool proof sizing, right?

Except I forgot to account for the thickness of the tile and the mastic, and now I can't wedge that puppy up in the window. And it wouldn't matter if I somehow could, because my vigorous slapping and tugging managed to break one of the pull strings.

This was a big fat failure.

I'm hoping to salvage the fabric and buy some cheapo blinds that actually fit our new window size. But for now I just want to cry. I was ready to call the kitchen dione with the exception of the floors. And now my 6 month project is officially going into month 7. Excellent.
