Recently, I had a friend who was decorating a nursery for her first little girl ask me, "what would you do with this window?"....
Many of us have windows like this and it leaves us wondering, "where do we put the window rod?"
She really wanted to have black out shades/panels so her baby can sleep during the day, and was not afraid to permanently block out the half moon window on top.
My solution was to take a sheet of mdf, cut out the half moon window shape, and apply a wood detailed applique in the middle of it (We purchased the applique piece from Lowes). To apply the applique piece, simply glue it down with wood glue and then calk around all the edges where it meets up with the primary piece you are adding it to. Her husband secured it to the window frame with L brackets.
We also made a thinner wood valance similar to the one I made for my daughter, with crown molding to fit right underneath the moon window.
I love how it turned out!
Inside of the wood valance fits the drapery rod for the darling panels she sewed!
I think it is so pretty and feminine, perfect for a sweet baby girl!
