Well, I tried a do-it-myself solution with screening and Velcro tape (had to take off the shade). All was going well until the second night when I realized I had hundreds of no-seeums flying around the light in the bedroom! Turns out the screening did not stay stuck to the adhesive on the Velcro very well.

Back to the drawing board...

The product installation requires a one and a half inch existing wooden frame to mount the roller assembly and side slide guides to. I purchased the reverse model in bronze. That allows for space behind and between the screen allowing the pleated shade to stay in place.

This install required i build a wooden frame about an inch wider than the window on each side. I installed the retractable shade in the frame, removed the valance, installed the frame on the wall around the window with right angle clips, and replaced the valance to the frame.
