    Hi Nan

    First you have to remove all the hanging vanes. Be careful not to break the little plastic carriers. If the cords are attached to the wall, remove them. Next remove the metal headrail from the brackets and flip it around the stack is on the side you desire. Pop the headrail back in, attach the cords and clip the vanes into the headrail.

    Good Luck
