A Quick Wood Valance That is Easy to Install

5 Materials

When I updated my kids' bathroom in our rental home, there were not very many things that I could change. Everything had to be temporary and easy to remove. Plus I didn't want to deal with having to patch up holes etc...

One of the issues I had was with the old pink blind up in the window. I started taking it off but realized it would leave a large hole in the wall and I didn't want to deal with that. Plus, there are no houses on that side, so privacy was not really a problem.

I used 2 1x4 boards and 2x2 boards to build the valance. It was as simple as cutting the 2x2 to the width I needed the valance to be and the 4x4 to the width of the window. I attached them with wood glue and finish nails.
After this, I painted the entire valance white.

TO hang the valance on the window, I added d-rings on the back and hung up the valance. Since it is not directly attached to the wall, it is super easy to remove when we leave.
