Great Window TreatmentsBook - 1998
Nothing pulls a room's d#65533;cor together like the right window treatment whether it's a cornice, valance or other unique feature. Delight your child with a cheerful cornice decorated with a Noah's Ark or Choo-Choo train. Bring the outdoors into your kitchen with a charming cornice covered with birdhouses or one resembling an ivy covered picket fence. For more traditional tastes there's an elegant French Provincial valance. Create light and airy window shutters with woven ribbons or use no-sew quilt squares to make cozy shutters for a bedroom. Discover unusual ways to display such treasured objects as family photographs, baseball paraphernalia, or a seashell collection as part of a window treatment. The colorful projects utilize a surprising array of materials, including fabric, wood, dried flowers, wallpaper, spools, and kitchen implements, as well as a variety of techniques such as decoupage, painting, sewing, and collage. Fully-illustrated instructions make these projects easy to complete. Whether you choose to duplicate a design or use it as a springboard for your own ideas, you'll enjoy discovering how great window treatments can enhance your home. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.
