Box Valance

I have been in the mood to change things up a little and so yesterday I decided to make a box valance for our family room door.

 I went to Hobby Lobby at noon and by 3:30 the valance was made and hung. I owe Karen at Sew Many Ways  a debt of gratitude for sharing her valance tutorial.

First I cut the drapery fabric to the size I wanted the valance to be, minus an 1/2 seam allowance on three sides....

I then used the cut drapery fabric as a template to cut the lining. I used muslin; inexpensive and easy to work with.

While my dear husband ran to Home Depot to get a 1 x3 board and L brackets I sewed and ironed the valance...

I placed the valance onto the board as suggested in Karen's tutorial, and my hubby stapled it into place for me.

Finally, it was hung into place, and.....

Viola! A custom made box valance. Sadly between the light outside and the dimness of the room I was unable to capture a great picture of the finished project, but...

I think you get the idea!
