16'x38' - Yes it's a long and narrow room, that is why I used a curved sectional to "break" the tunnel effect. Rooms like this one might seem like a challenge but you can house a lot of functions within it. In this case there is the seating area by the fireplace, a game table (in the corner behind the sectional) , the TV watching area and there a plenty of circulation to another wing of the home towards the front. There is a comfortable breakfast nook to the right behind the sectional. Be courageous and use common sense and you'll end up with a functional and beautiful room!

How do I learn how to make these valences - How do I learn how to make these valences

Hi Laverne,

Here are some tips:

1) Measure the width of your window and add 2" to each side
2) Roll out a piece of paper wide enough to match the desire height of your valances and cut it into the length obtained on step #1
3) Tape it to the window and draw the widths of the window's mullions (that's ideally where you want your swags to begin and end)
4) You are ready to cut you pattern! - Lay your paper on the floor and draw the swags between the drawn lines of the window mullions - You want your swags to drop at about one fourth or one fifth of the valance's total height.
5) Go to your fabric supply store and select the fabric you want for your room - Bring with you all the fabrics of your upholstered furnishings with your, paint chips and anything else that can help you make a coordinated selection.
5) Pick the darkest color in your pattern and try to find decorative drapery tape in a matching color.
6) You have a few options regarding "how to build your valance" - You can make an upholstered cornice which involves cutting plywood in a silhouette matching you pattern (step #4) and stapling your fabric to the plywood with thin batting in between OR
7) If you sewing skills are OK, you can use interlining (to give body to the valance) and lining toward the outside (facade or backyard)
8) Regardless of what option you chose to construct your valance, the next step is to apply the decorative drapery tape, which you can do by glueing it or sewing it. Remember this tape has to line up with the widow's mullions (preferably).
9) If you want to add the line of buttons to the swag profile (as seen in the photo) you'll need to stop at your sewing shop and get some buttons - Remember you want to use buttons to outline the swag so use small to medium size "fabric covered buttons"
10) You want to use a solid fabric to cover those decorative buttons - You can use the same color as you used on the tape or pick another color from the main pattern (one that will stand out a bit so the buttons don't get lost).

Good luck and let me know how your projects come out!
As I always say..."Escape the ordinary: be courageous"

Hello Linda,

I found that canvas at one of the antique dealers I work with on a regular basis, all I know is the last name of the artist "Bower" from the signature. I am sure you can find similar still-life at many local art galleries.

Best luck with your project!
