How To Make a DIY Drum Shade Apartment Therapy Design Evenings | Apartment Therapy
This DIY valance is made from a wooden plaque—we carry ready-to-finish versions in a variety of shapes and sizes. We screwed in a happy hodgepodge of knobs to hold a simple tie-tab curtain. Then we mounted the whole thing on a pair of scrap wood blocks.
Got a window you would like to make a little more private? Try using Cornstarch applied to the window glass, then using real lace (or other lightweight fabric - lace is better 'cause the starch goes right through the fabric). Can be removed later with hot water, so it's perfect for renters. Great for front doors. Fantastic idea!
