New Pelmet Box Window Treatments

We've been in our house for almost 2 years now and I still didn't have any window treatments for  my dining room windows. They're such an unusual size (58" x 22") and anything I wanted would have to be special ordered and we all know that special order is equal to expensive. Given the position of our house, I didn't need anything functional, just decorative, and I really like how much light they allow into the house.

Last year, I made 2 sets of 96" long curtains for our living room.  Since our home has an open concept floor plan I decided to use the same fabric for both rooms. After scouring the internet for ideas I decided to try my hand at making these pelmet boxes.

They were very quick and easy to make and cost next to nothing. Hanging them was also very easy, using some small L brackets. What was the most challenging was trying to photograph them up on the windows!

All that light made for some challenging photos but you get the idea. Below is the matching set. Now I just need to decide if I want to try and make a long one for the sliding glass doors that exit out to our lanai.

This is another one of my finishes for my Q1 Finish Along Project. I'm making lots of progress on that list, which makes me happy.


  1. They look great, Diana! I really appreciate having windows that don't require window treatments in my home, too.

  2. they have worked so well, I find it is nice to shut out the dark in the winter it makes the room feel warmer, not sure it really is warmer well not quite so cold really

  3. They look great! I will have to remember this trick for the future.

  4. Well Done! What a nice solution without having to have drapes. I've got window challenges as well and am still undecided on a plan of action. I'm seriously considering your idea - thanks for sharing.

  5. We took all our curtains down and just have wooden blinds . Mind you on s cold night like tonight I'm kind of sorry .

  6. Very nice! I love the added pop of color of the window treatments while still leaving most of the window uncovered, beautiful.

  7. So nice! must feel great to see every day! Congrats.
