For a fresh alternative to a plain valance, try using a tablecloth instead!
This is a 54" x 54" tablecloth folded diagonally and simply draped over a decorative curtain rod. We used a couple of small safety pins to help secure the ends. This idea works great for those vintage finds that have a little spot or other blemish. Or, use a colorful reproduction tablecloth to achieve the same cottage style look. This super easy window treatment can be changed out seasonally in a jiffy.
We hung a simple sheer panel underneath to filter the light a bit and provide a little more privacy. Another fun idea would be to create a set of cafe tiers with a matching tablecloth. So many ideas, so little time...
