I confess I do love a bit of diy, but I had honestly not considered I would take on window coverings without professional assistance. But what do you do when you run out of cash and need window coverings STAT?
Despite the gorgeous natural light, I realised the neighbours could see everything so leaving the windows naked was not an option (frankly, there are some things you cannot unsee).
For the original cottage I’d chosen linen curtains that softly drape and pool on the floor, but for the new extension I wanted a different, modern finish. Enter DIY Online Blinds (www.diyonlineblinds.com.au).
Countless options – check! Fantastic price – check! Easy – check!

I’m a bit of a sucker for a lucky dip, so buying blinds unseen, from the comfort of my couch, was a dream come true (you can order free samples if you prefer). Barely able to contain myself, all I had to do was:
- Select my blind
- Measure each window
- Choose my custom finish (fabric, chains, brackets, roll direction)
- Greet the delivery guy, and install them myself.
The delivery turned up quickly, and it was labelled and boxed in logical packages – which made it a breeze for me to follow the installation directions. Installation was really simple (don’t be daunted, you CAN do it).
I was so impressed, I jumped straight back online and ordered DIY Online Blinds for every other window. Now I can sit back with a glass of champagne–purchased with some of the savings I made–and admire my DIY Online Blinds handiwork!
