DIY Window Valances

Dress up a room and give it more visual height with window valances.
I built these out of 1/2″ ply wood, batting and the same fabric (or an extra panel) as the drapes. Tools used: pneumatic nail gun, wood glue, staple gun (with heavy duty staples), glue gun, L-brackets (to securely attach the valance to the ceiling in 3 places) and a cordless drill.
