Upholstered valances are still one of my favorite window treatments. Some people call them pelmets, I like upholstered valances. I think drapery fashion (cuz that’s what it is!) is so fun again after hitting a rough patch in the late 90’s and turn-of-the-millenium with just boring ol’ brown curtains. I guess it’s following fashion and everything colourful, girly, fun and generally late 80’s is hot.

What I built for my son’s room-

This was a fun project that I had been wanting to do for a long time. I used ready-made panels from Home Depot.
I built the valance out of pine shelving from the Home Depot as well. I had them cut it to size and my sweet hubby and I spent an evening screwing it together with L-brackets. I then covered it with quilt batting and then used a 3rd panel to cover it. Fun. And not as much work as I had anticipated.
Next week I plan to post about the relaxed roman shade I created in the dining room. Happy weekend!
