My mother wanted these. The design is more or less my own based on what I remembered of the ones in my grandmother’s house. I have them in other rooms stained and topcoated but with the paneling I decided to make them lighter and painted them with a semi-gloss enamel. The dogwood and roses were added on by an old girlfriend of mine who does some decorative painting. The little houses/buildings on top are not part of the valance, they’re part of my wife’s inability to leave any flat surface unadorned. The wood is #2 common pine picked up at the Big Orange Home Center.
-- We may never know who let the dogs out, but I'd bet anything PETA was involved.
