I was going to wait and share the nursery window valence until I reveal the entire nursery, but I worked so hard on it today, and it was much more work than I thought it would be so I decided it's post worthy.
When we bought our house they left these ugly window valences, well the fabric was ugly the actual valences were really nice. We never did anything with them so I decided to use one for the nursery. I was inspired by this pin on pinterest.
I absolutely love the monogram in the center of the valence. Since one of my best friend's mom has a monogram machine she generously did that part for me. That was the only easy part. Of course I put the fabric on upside down first, then had to redo it. Of course there was a stud in the spot I wanted to put the brackets to hang up the valence. All the anchors I had wouldn't work so after much frustration it was back to Lowe's. I am seriously thankful I live so close to one and the people who work there are actually helpful. I hate to admit it took me all day just to put this up, but it did.
I didn't put any curtains on the side because the window is smaller and I didn't want to block any light that comes in during the day. But, now that it's up I love the way it looks. As long as you don't look behind it and see all the holes from anchors and screws that didn't work!
The nursery is so close to being done, I can't wait. I am just waiting on some bedding my mom is making, a light for the nightstand, the changing pad and cover and the rest of the hardware to come in at Hobby Lobby. I can't wait to take pictures and post, hopefully soon!
