I am thankful for this completed task! I've been planning a window valance for this room for the entire seven years we have lived here. This weekend, it is finally done and up. Not only that, but my parents helped us to re-do the kitchen this summer (freshly painted cabinets, new linoleum, new rugs) and Lance (along with our friend Trevor) built this amazing bench with backpack cubbies and shoe racks and the coat hooks- finally the clutter by the door is contained! Anyhow, the valance was the final piece of that whole "re-do" as well. Yay for completion, it feels so good to work in this room!
