Did you know? Cutting Blinds that are Too Wide

2/28/2011

I purchased blinds online from JCPenny for the nursery, but they were too wide by just a smidge. The deal was really good so I didn't want to send them back. While researching a solution, I found a great article online about cutting them down to size and it worked like a charm!


A perfect fit!

We actually used a table saw to cut them all at once, wrapping all the slats with painter's tape first to hold them in place, then used the hack saw as shown above to cut the headrail.

  1. Thanks for this post!! So many people go out and spend alot of money to get blinds custom made just because they are unable to find the correct width.
