A Vintage Crate + TIME


Ladies & Gents Im going topless!! In my living room... ..in front of my windows... ... .. seriously Im doing it!! Im taking down my top... ... ... ... ... ... off my curtains! (you were scared for a bit werent you?)Thats right!! NO MORE VALANCES!!! Im over-em----done!! Now don't get all upset with me- I still like valances--just kinda tired of the look. Its a bit too traditional for me. and I want to let you know-its OK to go topless. let those drapes hang out!! Let them be free!! You will be amazed at how much more light your room will get!Here are just few examples of some (in the words of my best friend) "No Mam!!" (and if these pictures are of your home or someone you know-I do apologize in advance)

Now to be fair to you Valance-lovers out there, here are some examples of treatments done tastefully.
