I debated about making traditional curtains for Carter's nursery, but decided rustic valances fit much better with the rest of his room and would allow us to incorporate a few more license plates.
This project was very simple and only required one 8' pine board. Each window is approximately 3' long so Eric built 2 simple wood valances.
We stained them to match the rest of the furniture in the nursery and used screws to attach 3 license plates to each panel.
We hung them above each window using two L brackets.
So simple, but love what they add to the room!
