Saving money is always a good reason to celebrate. That’s why we have Black Friday in July. For which we actually have Jeff Bezos to thank and the marketing brains behind the first Amazon Prime Day just five short years ago in July 2015. Other major retailers were quick to jump on the bandwagon to compete with Prime Day, and hence, Black Friday in July officially became a thing. (Little known fact: Best Buy and Target actually used the phrase “Black Friday in July” to refer to summer sales as far back as 2012. Talk about ancient history. LOL.)
Just two short years later, in 2017, Black Friday in July was extensively covered by the media, thus solidifying it as an official shopping holiday. And where, might you ask, did the term “Black Friday” itself come from? Historians believe the name started in Philadelphia in the mid-1960s when bus drivers and police used it to describe the heavy traffic that clogged city streets the day after Thanksgiving as shoppers headed to stores. (Interested in other fun facts and stats about Black Friday in July? Here’s a brief history.)
Fast forward to the Select Blinds 2020 Black Friday in July sales event. No need to worry about traffic or crowded stores, particularly in this time of social distancing, or wearing a mask to shop online.

But then there are those husbands and dads who aren’t daunted by DIY tasks. Some, in fact, who more than excel in the DIY department. So, in celebration of Father’s Day 2020, we thought we’d give a tip of the hammer to some designing dads we know. Who says DIY home decor and design is the exclusive domain of women?
Meet Jason and Brian,
two dadsbydesign who are “slowly” DIY-ing their 1950’s fixer-upper in Salt Lake City while raising their rambunctious 2-year-old daughter, Sydney. From the floorboards up, they’ve been painting, plastering and picking out just the right finishes to make their home their own — including this sleek looking art ledge they built and hung in the living room. All by themselves.
And Jamin and Ashley,
husband and wife owners of rehab and design firm The Handmade Home in Franklin, Tennessee. Keeping up with three kids, clients and DIY projects for their own sprawling home is a never-ending job. But a look at the pictures here and you can tell they’re really great at it. (Seriously. Can I just move into their handmade hide-away in the backyard? Like right now.)
Winning designs — and dads — like these are no joke. But no Father’s Day would be complete without dad cracking a few, right? So check out some classic dad jokes, from “Why can’t a nose be 12 inches long? Because then it would be a foot.” to “I used to hate facial hair, but then it grew on me.” Get it? Ba-da-bum.
Handy (or funny) or not, we bet even your dad can hang our blinds. And that’s no joke. So be sure to check out our Father’s Day Sale, too. Shop today, Sunday, June 21, and save 30% PLUS your choice of either an extra 15% off everything or buy 2, get 1 FREE!
Would you like to win a $250 Visa gift card like Tina did? We’ll be announcing last month’s winner shortly, so now’s the time to enter for your chance to win in June. Just share a picture or two of your new window treatments from Select Blinds on Facebook, IG, or Twitter with the hashtag #blindswelove. Be sure to make your post public and tag along with us @selectblinds so we can see it, and you’ll be entered to win!

Want to do something special for Mom but can’t find the perfect surprise? Update a space that will give her a little alone time to relax and unwind! Pick an overlooked alcove, room, or even a (hopefully air-conditioned) shed and deck it out as a special space just for mom!
Choose Calming Colors
Neutrals are really in this year, but, honestly, when are they not? Choose some nice, calm colors mom will love. You can even throw in a few of her favorites to make the space more personalized.
A secret stash of mom’s favorite snacks plus an assortment of soft blankets and fuzzy pillows will go a long way to helping mom relax! Combine it with a good book or one of her favorite flicks and she’ll be ready for hours of relaxation!
Sure, we might say we don’t need flowers or anything, but we definitely wouldn’t say no if they just happened to magically appear on the kitchen table or nightstand! Pick up some of mom’s favorites at the grocery store, a local flower shop, or think outside the box with a Manly Man Beef Jerky Bouquet or even Edible Arrangements! Not only will they fill mom’s heart with love, they’ll also flood her nose with their delicious aromas.
Set the Mood
Creating a relaxing space for mom wouldn’t be complete without the perfect lighting and atmosphere. Add some smart lightbulbs and even some motorized blinds or shades so mom can get the perfect combo of light and dark any time of day – all without getting up from her cozy couch or chair.
Going for the boho or farmhouse look? Try some wood blinds or woven wood shades. Looking for something high-class, go for or roman shades! There really is something for every style. Plus everything is 30% off with another 15% off that, and you know how mom loves a good deal!
No relaxation room or she-shed would be complete without a few finishing touches to bring the room together. Add some mirrors, wall hangings, candles and even a miniature fountain! And don’t forget to pick mom up a good book so she can get in some reading during her “zen-time.” A card wouldn’t go amiss either – Mom’s love that stuff!
And who wouldn’t be with these gorgeous Classic Cordless Woven Wood shades on their windows? A tennis pro in Pennsylvania, Megan served them up with her more traditional decor for a unique match we absolutely love. (Totally digging that chandelier and mirror!) Just look how beautifully they filter that warm, spring light to give her living space a comfy glow. Love. Set. Match!
“We have lived in our quaint Cape Cod home for over seven years and have never had blinds or shades as we love all the light that comes in through our old, paned windows. We thought it was time to try some window coverings to add privacy without eliminating all the light.”
“We ordered one roller shade as a test to see how well it would work for my kids’ bathroom. The Select Light Filtering Roller Shade in White is perfect for our needs. It was easy to install, simple, clean-lined and a good value. My children are happy since they have more privacy but still get to enjoy the beauty of the house!”
Jaclyn, what a great addition to your kids’ bathroom! It really does let the light in while adding an extra layer of privacy – an essential part of any bathroom. The bright white goes great with the style of your home, too, and we love the fun tiles on the floor!
