A while ago I came across this picture:
I'm not a huge fan of yellow but what I loved about this picture was the ribbon stripe on the white valance. Loved it!
So I bought a bunch of brown satin ribbon from eBay for dirt cheap. I had some of that iron-on webbing that Ikea always includes with their curtains to make hemming easy. I used that to iron the ribbon onto our white valance.
I didn't even remove it from the bed, just tucked the folded ironing board underneath and went to town.
I love how it turned out!! Here are a couple of taster pics only - there are a few more things I want to do in the bedroom before posting proper pics.
