I wanted to make valences for my bedroom windows but decided I am not a fan of how they turned out. It looks like something out of Country Living Magazine. I feel like I'm living in a farmhouse - which is not a bad thing - just not the look I'm going for. I already have the material, so I'll probably finish the valences for the other two larger windows but as soon as I have time I'm going to do some more work and experiment with simple white material. I already have another idea. Much better. MomMA will hate it because it involves the wavy bleached wood pieces I used in my old apartment bedroom.
I also brought back old blue Ball canning jars that were in Gram's garage. I filled the bottom with white sand and seashells and added glass votives. They are really pretty and remind me of my grandma. I miss her. The pictures aren't great. I had to take them with my phone because my camera battery needs charged. I will try to get better ones when my room is finished.
