    I love it Julie! A perfect treatment for any window that doesn't need privacy or has a shade underneath that hides up under that. Great stencil, too!

    Wow Julie, that looks really great! I love drop cloths and have been using them for some time now. In fact, I'm working on a project right now that is getting the drop cloth treatment!

    Julie- It is beautiful. I love it. It is amazing how much more words you have to expend to tell how to actally DO something, isn't it? The doing is easier than the telling sometimes! xo Diana

    Julie, that looks so pretty! I love the Paris theme. I have done one of these valences and you are right it does go pretty quick. Great job.

    I love this! I love what you painted on the shade as well. I am going to have to go and get some of the drop cloth stuff I keep seeing. Awesome idea and soooo up my alley.

    I can just see you lying in bed, in the middle of the night, thinking of how you're going to create all of these things! Of course, you do everything to perfection, always making me laugh! Love the results too!

    So cute and professional looking! I'm using drop cloths a lot lately and love that they are so versatile. All of your projects are so creative and well thought out.

    I linked to Lola's curtains in my post from a few days ago. Hope you'll check it out!

    You did it! I have been looking for an easy curtain for windows that don't have privacy issues, I wanted roman shades but didn't want all the fuss of cords, and dowels, and you have the perfect shade. I'm so glad I came across your blog via FunkyJunk Interiors. Thanks for sharing! ( and I can't wait to come back and read more of your posts)

    Hey–your shade looks great. I've done some stuff like this and do have a few tips. First of all, they sell kits with string and pulley so you can raise and lower the shade–a string is fed thru some rings and attaches to the window at some hooks. Not at all hard to do. (Joann's) Secondly, you can staple to the wood and just use a seam ripper to make a teeny hole in the fabric, then the drill bit won't get caught and wound all around for smooth drilling. Finally, I've used a sort of print on the computer transfer paper (they have it at Joann's) to print a photo and then iron onto fabric. It came out well. I bet an image like yours would come out even better. In any case I think you did a great job, love your shade and the color and moulding in your bath are beautiful.

    Hi… I love your blog! You did a fabulous job on your window treatment! I too love anything and everything Paris.I have not stenciled much, but I'm considering stenciling the walls in my daughters' bathroom. I have been looking online for patterns…XoXo

    I saw you over at Designer Garden. I love what you did with this shade! I have a small window in the kitchen where something like this would be perfect. Thanks for inspiring me with your talent…
