“I have a valance that needs to be updated” was what this client in Glen Ellyn, Il said when she called us. The window coverings were the last step in a project that included new paint and crown molding in their new home. This valance had once been perfect.

It was once the perfect addition to the living room, but the other updates in the home simply made it look old and out of place. To my client’s surprise, she learned that her husband liked the existing valance even less than she did, and he was also ready for a change.
