Hey everyone!

I have this small list of home improvement projects, and i need help with one of them.

I bought a roller shade to block out light in our bedroom. I measured the area and had the shade cut specificly. I tried to put it up today, and it's literally about 1/4 of an inch or less too short! Does anyone know how to extend it a bit--any creative ideas? It's so frustrating.

My mother home improvements for today are:

change light bulbs in the dining room
tightened screws for banister
replace face plates for electrical in newly-painted rooms
small patch (spackle) and paint jobs around the house (three today)
glue down wallpaper in bathroom (it's curling)
and

that roller shade! argh!

any help?

I'd add some sort of trim, it should even look pretty like that if you can find something that coordinates nicely

i don't mind the plain look--i have pretty curtains in front of it.

i just want it to fit and not have to replace it. but i'll replace it if i have to.
