Vinyl Wallcovering - Roll Up Blinds - Where to find?

I am looking for 2 items to complete my restoration.

I am having a seriously hard time finding burnt orange, textured vinyl wallpaper. Anyone ever find this at a reasonable price?

This is an example of what I am looking for. Problem is, this is commercial paper and super expensive. I need something less than $200.

Also, where are people finding the Roll-up Blinds? We currently have miniblinds but they look cheap to me. I want to replace...

Thanks for any help. Almost there...

I did my roll up blinds with a DIY kit from JoAnn's. The kit comes with a roller, hardware, stiffener and instructions and you fuse your own fabric to make the shade.

I just made my own blinds with fabric that matches my interior. I found easy instructions online.....here is one site: http://mattandshari.com/no-sew-proje...ler-shade.html It is really easy using iron on interfacing. You can buy a new roller shade and take off the plain white shade, or recycle an old shade you already have. Here is a pic of our bathroom blind.

That definitely looks like the one. I had expected one with a spring loaded roller, but it came with a loop at the side that lets the shade be positioned exactly. I like it better this way.

I haven't put them in a blog, but here's a link to another Airforums post that shows pictures.

I ended up going with some roller blinds from IKEA. They were able to be cut to length and I liked the color and style. I also liked the price.

They are here.
