Nothing like a little leather and nail head to update a classic like a valance box! Some call this a cornice board, but what ever you call it, THIS IS SNAZZY! It is crazy simple and a sleek addition to any living space. Below you will find the easy steps to follow to make your own.
Nail the top to the front. Then nail the sides to either end.
Finished frame for the valance box
Cover the frame with the quilt batting. Use the spray adhesive to hold the batting in place.
Repeat the same process with the leather
Trim the excess leather from the frame. Staple the leather to the frame.
COOL TIP!!!-The last thing you want to do is catch a glimpse of a silver staple inside your box after you have installed this beautiful valance. To avoid this, use a paint pen to color your staples and they quickly disappear!
Mark a 2″ border around the edges of your board. Use a small hammer to attach the nail head trim. Apply a few inches at a time to ensure the trim stays level.
