First, you’re going to build the shape of your valance. It’s pretty self explanatory.  I just screwed the corner “L” brackets to secure the sides to the long piece of board.

Cover your entire valance (except the back if you want to skip that like I did) with batting. Secure with the staple gun and staples. Repeat the same process with your fabric. I used a thick textured cotton.

Yay!!! Our next tutorial is up on @abeautifulmess! Head over to abeautifulmess.com to see the tutorial for this DIY Faux Herringbone Backsplash we did! Make sure you're following them on Instagram too! Their feed is #!

I really love how it turned out and it’s about 1 million times better than the brown blinds that were there before. I love that it adds a pop of pink without being over the top! Now excuse me while I eat that platter of donuts! 😉

    I love this… Thank you for the tutorial. Where do I purchase the ribbon from? (I’m assuming everything else I can get from Home Depot/Lowes.)
