After redecorating the kitchen, the south facing window cried out for dressing.
A simple pelmet, covered in pretty floral fabric, was created.
I measured the width of the window, adding 3 inches to each side. Having decided on a depth of 12 inches for the drop, I bought a piece of MDF and had it cut to size. Two pieces of timber, 3 x 1 inches, were secured to each end, to form the box.
Wadding was cut to size and stapled to the box.
The end blocks were also covered with wadding.
The fabric chosen was purchased from a local fent shop. I bought an ex-display curtain, utilising both fabric and the lining. The fabric had to be pieced together, creating a pattern-matched join, to achieve the required length.
The fabric is attached. I stapled it on top of the wadding, starting from the centre, to ensure the pattern was straight.
A neat lining was added.
Two metal fastenings were attached. The pelmet was then ready for hanging.
A pretty addition to the kitchen window.
