So I got this idea for valances in our family room a few months ago.
My husband helped me hang these shoe forms on the inside of the windows "like so".
We just happened to have an old curtain rod in the garage that fit into the holes in the form PERFECTLY, imagine that? It was even long enough to cut into 2 pieces, one for each window.
And then there they sat.
I tried many things hanging off of that rod...
1. Dish towels
2. Braided rugs
4. Coffee sacks
5. Table runners
6. Brown Kraft paper
Nothing was quite right.
Then this weekend I was sorting through some old photos of my grandparents and inspiration hit.
Why not photos?
See the trouble with of the other options was that this room is already dark...and all of those other choices just closed of the space. This option keeps things a little lighter...and now I get to look at these special pictures everyday :)
Aren't they cute?
I love this one :)
It took me quite a while to notice the extra person sitting on the ground below them. Having fun with friends...I love to think of them that way!
I couldn't resist adding a little "junk" here...
And window #2
I think I like it...but I have a feeling these are going to be fun to "switch up". Greens for Christmas? Book pages with letters? We'll see :)
