PLEASE READ DELIVERY TIME FRAME PLEASE READ DELIVERY TIME FRAME

♥ ♥ ♥ DELIVERY OF ORDERS IS MID TO END OF SEPTEMBER UNLESS NOTED IN LISTING AS A 2-6 WEEK LEAD TIME. I DO HAVE A FEW ITEMS THAT ARE "READY TO SHIP" IMMEDIATELY ♥ ♥ ♥


THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL 2015! IT IS BECAUSE OF MY ETSY CUSTOMERS THAT I AM ABLE TO WORK FROM MY HOME. I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR SUPPORTING MY SMALL HOME BASED SHOP, AND I HOPE WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR ITEMS YOU WILL BE GLAD THAT YOU WAITED! ♥



My goal is to give you a custom look at an affordable price! Linen fabric is becoming very popular in draperies. While linen is much more expensive than muslin, I wanted to add linen items to my line in 2014. I have designed a Luxe Linen line which I am loving. I have also given you the option of choosing 100% linen or a linen blend. If you like the design, but really don't want to spend a lot of money that a linen panel would cost, we can design it in the linen blend.

Whatever your need might be, I will help you design the perfect item for your perfect room at a price that you can afford! And no one will ever guess that you didn't have a decorator do it for you!

I want to thank you for supporting my 100% handmade home-based business which is staffed by only myself. All designs and workmanship are done entirely by myself. So please be patient with my lead times. I want to give you the best possible workmanship for an affordable price!****

Please understand that 99% of my orders are custom orders. I will not hurry through an order to get it out sooner. I pride myself on my quality and workmanship. I make each and every decorator item myself. I understand that 6 to 10 weeks is a long time to wait for your items, but I hope that when you receive them, you will be glad that you waited!

About

Custom Draperies For The Everyday Home!

Thank you for supporting my 100% handmade home-based business. My business is ran entirely by myself. I design, sew and package everything that goes out by myself from start to finish. Please be patient with my lead time! I want to give you a quality product at an affordable price.

I think I first started sewing when I became pregnant with my first daughter 44 years ago. I really don't know where my sewing creativity came from. No one in our family prior to myself sewed.

I first started out years ago sewing kids clothes. Then I sewed square dance clothes. These were really fun to do, but I really wanted something different to set me apart from others.

When my Mom passed away, she left her mink stole to me. What in the world was I going to do with a mink? Nobody wore them anymore! To make a long story short, I started making teddy bears out of mink. Thus born my Bear Hugs! business.

Then after I did that for about 10 years, we moved and I needed drapes for my home. But just not plain old drapes....I wanted the ruffles and poufs and big headers! I couldn't afford to have them made, so I learned how to make them myself. Thus born Shades Up! business.

I was the Midday Decorator on Channel 4 for a year, and was featured on every local channel in our area with my drapes and balloon valances. My home turned into a workroom with rolls of fabrics everywhere, orders hanging on the walls and windows, etc. But I loved creating a window treatments!

I was working with local designers, but I also wanted my draperies to be available to people who couldn't afford to have a designer come into their homes. So I opened my workroom up to the public.

After 12 years of having sewing machines in my dining rooms, and rolls of fabrics everywhere, I decided to close my workroom. I went about life doing "ordinary" jobs, but still missed the creativity of designing and sewing draperies.

Recently, I have opened my workroom back up and am now creating a lot of the Shabby Chic and Farmhouse Chic look in draperies. Instead of the $35.00/yard decorator fabric, I use 100% cotton muslin, and drop cloths for my panels. Lots of vintage ruffles and repurposing of different fabrics!

I hope that you will take a look at what I offer and if you have any questions, please convo me! I would be more than glad to help you or answer questions.

Shop policies

I do my very best to make sure that you receive a quality item! If upon receiving your item, it is not as described, please convo me immediately!

Shades Up & Co! always appreciate referrals and repeat customers! Thank you for supporting my 100% handmade small business designed and constructed by only myself. I have been truly blessed and been given the gift of sewing and my goal is to offer you a custom window treatment at an every day price

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I happily accept PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.
Deposits are non-refundable.

Unless otherwise stated, all items are custom orders. If you furnish the fabric, I do not require a payment up front. Payment would be due when you are notified that the item(s) are ready to ship. Once the payment has been received, and cleared the bank if in a check form, your item will be shipped.

I know how expensive it is to purchase a custom window treatment! If you would like to work with me on a payment plan, I would love to do that for you!. Please let me know at the time of ordering if you want to set this option up and I will work with you on up to 4 payments. The item(s) will not be shipped until the final payment is made. However, please note that if we arrange a payment plan, and then something happens and you are unable to follow through with the order, please be aware that deposits are NOT refundable. The item will then be set up on a Buy It Now listing. When your order is placed, I purchase the material(s) at that time. So therefore I also have an investment in your order. As much as I hate to have to allow no refunds, it is something that I have had to initiate in order to protect my investment as well. Thank you for your understanding!
Shipping
♥♥DELIVERY ADDRESS, NEW POLICY:

I ship to the address which you have listed when you check out whether you use PayPal or Direct Checkout. It is the buyers responsibility to ensure the address is correct and/or current. If you will be moving BEFORE your order arrives, please convo me BEFORE you pay for your order so we can determine what the best way is to handle where the item will be shipped. Again, I only ship to the address on file, so please be aware of this policy. Anything returned to me or lost due to an incorrect address will result in new shipping charges, which will be the responsibility of the buyer

♥♥SHIPPING INSURANCE: Please note that $100 of insurance is included in Priority USPS shipping charges along with a tracking number if shipped within the US.

Thank you for your understanding!
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the custom nature of my designs, sales are final so please purchase thoughtfully. The fabric for your order is purchased at the time you purchase the listing. I know it is a long wait time to receive your items, however, if you change your mind while waiting, just know that there are no refunds for any reason, so again, please purchase with that in mind. Again, your fabric is purchased immediately after you order. Thank you for your understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
My turnaround time will vary depending on the workload, but I will let you know what the time frame is when you place your order...normally 10-12 weeks. I will do my best to get you your item as fast as possible! I do work entirely by myself making one order at a time. I won't compromise my quality and hurry through an order. If you need an item by a certain date, please convo me and I will do everything in my power to get it to you, but I can't guarantee this.

Also, please know that ALL fabrics come with flaws. I do my very best to work around them, but there are times that it is impossible. If it is an obvious or very large flaw, I don't use the fabric. The flaws that I do work with are either very minuscule, or are hidden or covered and not seen. However, this does not affect the wear of the panel or quality of the panel in any way.

My panels that I photograph are "staged". This means that I have taken more time to hang them, dress them down, make the ruffles hang just right, etc. It really isn't hard to do this. Some people are better at it than others. The pictures I show of my panels can be made to look just like that in your home; it just depends on how good you are at staging them and how long you have to work with them. :)
