Today, while recovering from the celebrations of yesterday, I had promised my wife that I would hang the new venetian in the kitchen. So after gathering the tools, laying out the new blind, it was time to start.
First up, I removed the slats of the new blind.
I took the old blind down, and we were ready to go.
Top and bottom extrusions hacksawed down to size, end caps refitted, and hanging brackets fitted, slats going on.
It was time consuming cutting 24 mm off each end of each slat
However, trimmed they were, and inserted into the ladder tapes
A few finishing touches
Putting on the bottom extrusion, and all done
And, it works!
Mind you, the day wasn’t all work – we had some visitors earlier in the day. A neighbour’s cat has recently had kittens, and they were out and about exploring. One of our cats (Fozzie), just looked on.
Live, laugh, love!
