A repurposed window valance is a fun way to dress a window with things that you already have.
Valances can be made out of almost anything, and I’m so egg-cited to share mine with you today. 🙂
I’ve already created two fun and funky window valances in my craft studio that store necklaces and silver trays that I use in repurposing projects.
But I also have several collections of things that are taking up much needed craft studio space. It’s time to unscramble them, and add them into our home decor for us to enjoy every single day.
What good are they doing hidden away?
First up, you guessed it, is my collection of vintage egg beaters.
I’ve been wanting to display these for years and, since I just poached two more from my local thrift store’s 25 cent gadget bin, now’s as good a time as any.
Storing them in the lid part of a Christmas wrapping paper container is not exactly the best way to enjoy or honour them.
After giving all 3 kitchen windows a faux tea towel vinyl blind makeover I felt like there was something missing at the top.
This is the perfect place to mix it up with some fun repurposed decor.
I picked out the egg beaters that I liked best and using 1″ finishing nails I started hanging my beaters… with two of the longest ones on the outside.
A cool vintage wooden handled beater/whisk from my stash is perfect for the centre spot.
Then I measured and marked where the rest of the beaters should go.
I hung them by size, with the longest on the outside.
I’m so happy that I was able to vary the handle colour for some interest.
So get your collections out of the boxes, bags, and bins that they’ve been stored in for who even remembers how long.
You may be surprised to find a fabulous collection that could take one of your windows from ordinary to egg-tradionary.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist getting one last one in there. 🙂
I’m so happy that my collection of vintage egg beaters is out where they can be enjoyed.
I’ll be sharing window number two’s repurposed window valance, which is completely different, later this week.
So stay tuned.
If you enjoyed this project, you might also enjoy my repurposed egg beater wind chime.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
