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.

hahahahaa I’m laughing at “my wife’s inability to leave any flat surface unadorned”.

These are really sweet – and they are “copies” of Grandma’s house? Awwww EXTRA special.
