from Cinnya.(her idea is below in blue) I didn't have room for a shelf but I was able to do my valance to match and then I went a little further and made the ceiling fan match. I was hoping the rest of my sewing room would be finished by now so I could show you my whole "woman cave". I will post more pictures when it's all done.
