Needed a valance for a curtain that covers a french door in my bedroom but didn't want to commit or pay for a permanent valance. Decided to purchase napkins in the colors of my bedroom and hung them randomly over the tension rod that holds the curtain.
Liked it so much I decided to continue on to the other window.
This hangs over the window above my bed. The white curtain below is a Rachel Ashwell pique curtain. I needed a valance agan, so I bought four Rachel Ashwell napkins at Target, and a pack of 5 door knobs.
I took the napkins and sewed them together 1/4 of the way down each side. I left the other 3/4 open so they would drape nicely once hung.
I took the door knobs I bought and glude a thumb tack to the back and pressed it into the dry wall.
Took some ribbon I had laying around and sewed it to the napkins where they each met and hung them to the door knob/thumb tack contraption.
And there she hangs.
One more ... this is hanging in the adjoining bathroom and covers a closet. I took the bi-fold shutter style door down and covered the closet with a fabric shower curtain hung on a tension rod again. Same napkins as I used in the window over the bed.
Shower curtain wasn't long enough for the opening, so used a table runner across the bottom.
Love the informality and shabbiness of these looks and oh so inexpensive.
