These are the valances I've had hanging in my kitchen for the last three years. I love grapes and the wine country feel. But picking things out to make a room look good is very difficult for me. So I went somewhat muted.
My mother-in-law who takes tour groups to France picks up for me the French fabrics that I use in tablerunners. I love those fabrics. One of them that I've had for a while is this.
I love the colors and design, but didn't know how to use it. Then one day, I wanted a change in my kitchen and that seemed the perfect fabric to use. Therefore the new valances.
I used these sunflower buttons for the tabs. Sunflowers are French.
And they go with my colored lights.
My husband really likes them. I have some children that don't really like them. What do you think?
One thing about valances they aren't expensive and easy to change out. I'll keep the old ones for a change. Maybe I'll make some for the different seasons also, who knows?
