Teen Girl’s Bedroom

Upholstered Headborad Girls Bedroom

With three girls I’ve decorated my share of girl’s bedrooms. Many times over. We’ve swapped rooms, switched furniture, repainted, sewn new bedding, moved out, moved back in…and I’ve loved every minute of it.

Beyond the Screen Door Layered Valance

Amy’s Kitchen Valance

Beyond the Screen Door Layered ValanceThis valance has the distinction of being the longest valance I’ve ever made as well as the one with the most pieces! Longest as in widest spanning over 16′ of wall space.

Not only was it the longest but it was one of the most fun valances I’ve ever made due to these cool fabrics! So much fun to work with. You’ve seen this fabric previously as pillows.

In case you like statistics…

  • Valance covered 195.5″ of wall space
  • If stretched out, valance is 384″ long aka 32′
  • Mounted with 13 medallions
  • 4 different fabrics
  • 63 individual pieces for main valance including lining & loops.
  • 12 yds of fabric

But the results were worth it! Continue reading
