Window treatments can make such a difference in a room. Here’s the latest one I made for my guest bedroom, and the best part is it’s NO-SEW.
It was inspired by this window valance Brooke did on All Things Thrifty, but she used paintable wallpaper. I wanted to use fabric to match the rest of the décor. I followed Brooke’s tutorial to make my wooden valance (or as my interior design friend, Wendy, informed me it’s called a cornice).
Then I cut out my fabric and batting slightly larger than the valance.
I ironed my batting to my fabric.
Then got out the staple gun and started stapling the fabric/batting down.
Pretty simple, huh? I made a few of these for some other rooms as well and they each only took a few minutes. I love quick and easy projects!
Going back to Brooke’s tutorial, I attached curtain rod hardware and a wooden dowel to hang the drapes from, then used her instructions for hanging the whole thing on the wall.
(P.S. I could only find the L-brackets that go on the actual wall at Home Depot).
Here it is all hung.
Just the right touch. Who said you needed to know how to sew to make valances with fabric?
