This is a beautiful, soft, lush printed velvet, with a gold contrast fabric welt, for 23' of Sheffield valance in a huge bay window. The sides of the bay are nearly 6' each, and the center is 10 1/2', so the installer wanted to staple the valance on-site, which I totally understand. But, tacking strips are so not my thing! To me they're a million times harder than just stapling the whole thing in the studio myself, the normal way, so I can fuss over it. I would have hinged the boards so it would fit into a van.... oh well. I will be worrying about the fit until I hear back that it turned out well.
Sorry no finished product photos for this work, which took up a giant bite of my week.
