Vintage aprons used as a Window Valence

Vintage aprons used as a Window Valence


Vintage aprons were used as valences in my Nifty 50s Kitchen at my Nostalgic Private House rental. I simply cut a small slit opening on the inside in the waist banding for the curtain rod to be pulled through.  That's it!  No major damage to the aprons at all.  I get so many compliments from that simple way to display vintage aprons in the home.

Thanks for sharing.
