Naked Windows are No Longer

We finally installed blinds in the living room!  Weeeeee!

To add texture, I decided to hang some valances.  After a lot of thinking, I decided to make smooth valances instead of ruffled ones.  I got my inspiration from this Etsy Shop.  Here are before and after shots.





Feel free to ignore the sooty fireplace and the basket of cat toys.

Anyhow, I used Dwell Studio’s Bella Porte in Charcoal.  It’s my favorite fabric.  If you like it, too, you can order it at  In a little bit, I’m going to post directions for making a valance like the ones pictured above.
