211" of Sheffield valance

I want to show you the ladies' lounge at a local country club, just to give you an idea of the scale and context of this 211" modified Sheffield valance.

And here is 80% of the monster valance.  The decorator could not stand in a place to get a good angle to show the whole window at once. 

Five sections of about 40" each follow the lines of the individual windows, and the jabots make up the difference at the ends.

The workroom table is 144" long but the valance is 211".   Luckily the trash can is the same height as the table and is willing to be pressed into service in such a situation to support the boards.

At about 40" the sections are a lot wider than normal. 
The boards are hinged so the treatment would fit into a vehicle. 

The designer chose gathered jabots for a softer look.
