While visiting my family in northern California, my mom made a fabric headboard for my younger sisters bedroom. The fabric she used was this floral print that almost reminded me of a Monet painting. In my little sisters room she also made a duvet, some dress pillows and re-upholstered a cast iron chair, using the same fabric. She mixed light purple gingham fabric through out the room & on the valance. It really gave the room a custom look. What I like most about this fabric is that it’s youthful but also could be used in an adults room as well. My mom is planning on making seat pillows for the built-in bench above the window. I love how everything matches in my little sisters room even the furniture is a light green that matches the fabric. The only piece of furniture that isn’t painted green is the cast iron bed and vanity chair…just too cute!
The great thing about this valance is that she didn’t have to sew. She bought a foam valance kit at the fabric store & it gives you different options of how to make it yourself. I was blown away by how cool it turned out and what I loved most about it is that you didn’t need to sew it together. My mom said that she played with the fabric to get it how she wanted it. We hung it right under the bottom of the crown molding shelving, it gave the room more height and a focal point in the bedroom.
The foam kit she used is called “window valance” made by Tailer.
Inside the package has a how-to style book.
