Curved Valance

I just want to say it's such a blessing and gift from God, to be paid for learning and doing what I love love. :)

A lot of you probably haven't heard much from me lately.. BUT that does not mean I'm laying around playing COD all day. It's because I've been pumping out a couple hundred craft kits.. a couple trim work jobs and this Curved Valance. :) annnnnnd leaving dust tracks everywhere in the house.. sigh my mother hasn't been too pleased. haha

Here's some photos.. first of all, my moment of inspiration.. haha (sorry.. just had to throw this one in :p) 2nd of all, the design I had done up for the client. Then last but not least the finished product. What is the valance for? Well as you can briefly see there's a grill on the underside of the cabinet which is in-casing a ventilation fan.

Thanks for checking my thread out! I appreciate it! I really do :)

Thank you all for the kind words! haha MH, I would think of maybe doing that minus the fact that I live in the Prairies in Canada... not much for New York High rises... let alone high rises! But I do appreciate the encouragement! It was a weird piece.. and I didn't make good money for the amount of work put into it, but I took it on as a learning project. So can't go wrong with getting payed to learn! :)

Very nice work, Levi. It looks perfect in that space and the curves are quite stylish. How is it mounted to the wall?

I agree, by the way, about the picture of yourself. It would make a nice avatar. It oozes confidence.
