I like to launch project stories with a dramatic "after" shot, but in this case, I don't have one. I will someday, but I want to write about this project now. I'm going to tell this story sort of backwards.
I was asked to fabricate a treatment for a 10' high space in a rather grand 19th century home.
The space was measured previously and the dustboard assembled, for a five-sided bay area. The frame I was given was pretty big- about 4' high when standing on end, and about 12' wide at the front. My job was to make a Kingston valance out of rose-colored velvet with jabots, self-decking on the back, and tassel trim sewn IN.
