I may not be the queen of repurposing, but i do try my best. Not able to find and purchase valances of the right length and type i wanted for my kitchen windows had me tying on my thinking cap. Of course! Old pillowcases! Of all the households’ worth of stuff we have in storage, surely i could find something that would work without using an heirloom. It took me longer to scrounge through all the scraps than it did to make the valances. A couple mismatched yellowed and gross pillowslips were found and put to a new purpose and they are exactly what i had in mind!
