My custom valances

So I have been looking everywhere for curtains that I like for my Dinning room. I couldn't find any. We looked high and low, all that we could find were the ready made ones, but I wanted a certain type of print. So we looked into custom curtains and we were wowed at the cost. So I told my Husband that I will make them. We found a great fabric store that has tons and tons of fabrics. I picked out what I wanted and it took me a while to figure out what type of curtain I wanted to do.

Here is what my windows look like before:

So I eventually decided on the waterfall Valance. Love the look of it. I made 3 the other day and had to go back to the store to get more fabric yesterday. I finished the other two valances today.

I do need to make the side panels out of the same fabrics yet. I just have to pick up some lining fabric, which might be a little while and I am o.k with that..... I think. ;-)

Here is what it looks like now:

Right now they are hanging on tension rods only because I am waiting for my bay window curtain rods to come in and I am very impatient and wanted to see them up. lol

I figure that I will do a little at a time to get the look that I want. I still need to put the dangling trim on the bottoms but that will have to wait. I have to keep reminding myself that Christmas is right around the corner and I need to budget the funds wisely. So a little at a time.

When I have everything finished I will post a final photo. It may take some time.
