I found an old Window Treatments book when cleaning out a drawer, and the instructions for this valance were in the book. My client loved them and wanted them in this rental unit.
Here is another view.
This is the little kitchen from the living space.
I'm pretty certain I said a number of ugly words while making these. There are also panels that will go along french doors in the living area. Those haven't been hung yet, but I'll get pics of those when we do. I also hope to have pics of the finished room. The view is fantastic from this room too.
To determine the width of your triangles, first determine how many you want. We went with 4. Measure the finished width and divide by the number of triangles. In our case, these windows were 44" wide casing to casing, and I divided by 4. So I spaced the points 11" apart. You will also want to add width if you choose a utility rod that curves into the wall. I didn't do that, and we were a bit short. But, we originally were going to use cafe rods, so I didn't need the extra width.
Feel free to ask questions. These weren't difficult. I totally recommend using a template. It was a life saver!!
