How to Make Your Own Wood Window Valence with Curtains

One of the things I love about my house is all the natural light. I have large and small windows, which leads me to today’s post – wood window valance tutorial!

These valances can dress up your windows and whole living space, but they don’t have to cost a fortune! You can do them yourself for as little as $20!


– Choice of wood – Wood stain  – Miter saw  – Wood screws – Metal corner brackets – Paint brush and rags – Sheer curtains

The first thing you need to do is cut all your wood. Like I mentioned, your measures will probably be different the the ones I listed. Make sure to measure twice, cut once!

Once cut, before you do anything else, make sure to sand down the rough edges.

For my wood I went with a nice dark wood stain but you can choice a lighter wood stain or a driftwood grey, whatever matches your decor best!

Slightly dip your brush in a wipe the excess before starting on your wood, otherwise you may end up with an almost black piece of wood because it is so stain soaked.
