I used a piece of plywood I found laying around in the garage…..(I hope my Hunny didn’t have plans for it or anything.) and cut it into the right length and height for my fabric and window. I added a bottom swoop (that I am sure has a real name, but I have no idea what it is) for interest. I also cut 2 long strips to attach to either side so that the valance was a sort of box shape coming off the wall.
I made a little pattern diagram showing how the sham became usable fabric.

The next project was pretty cool too, I added a tile backsplash over the sinks! I was so excited that I have decided to do the same thing in my kids bathroom too, so I will probably take step by step photos of the process then, but for now here is a “after” picture of the tile. These types of tiles are perfect for bathrooms and you can click here to learn about ceramic tile installers near me if they interest you.
I have since added new faucets, painted away the green, and added coordinating tiles to the bathtub surround (I think I have process pictures of that, I will have to check, it was very scary smashing out 5 random tiles from the 4″x4″ tiles in the tub surround and adding an accent tile with the 2″x2″ brown tile from the backsplash. You can actually see the wall color and a peek at the accent tiles around the tub in the valance picture.)
