Practical hack for Praktaralia


Materials: Praktaralia table runners x 4

I needed two window valances for my 7-year-old son’s room which we were redecorating with several IKEA storage pieces. As I was rummaging through the “As Is” section, I found Praktaralia table runners marked down to $1.99 each.

To make the valance, I ironed one table runner in half lengthwise and sewed two straight lines across to form a rod pocket. Then I sewed (with a decorative zigzag stitch) another runner directly below the rod pocket. After trimming excess material from the back, I had a inexpensive and attractive window valance!
