« Part 1: Getting started Part 2 of Valances series no next part

Well, I finally got around to finishing up one of these. There wasn’t a whole lot left to do from where I left off last time.

I planed the top down to just over 1/2” thick and cut it down to size and finished up the assembly:

My miters were not perfect, so some wood epoxy and wood filler for the nail wholes did the trick.

After giving everything a good sanding it was time for a few coats of paint, 3 coats of a spray on primer, 2 coats of white gloss enamel, and 2 coats of a gloss clear enamel

I still need to build one more of these, once I get that one finished and both are hung I’ll post the finished project.
