Cut Out Stencil

Use retractable utility knife to cut monogram stencil from clear acetate alternative.

Place Stencil and Add Paint

Center monogram stencil along face of valance. When using spray paint, position can directly above stencil, aiming straight down. Keeping the can of spray paint approximately 8 inches from the surface of the fabric, apply even coats by moving back and forth in a slow, controlled manner. For fabric paint and stencil brush application, dab stencil brush into paint, then dab directly down onto stencil. Allow paint to dry for at least 30 minutes before removing stencil.

Attach to Wall With L-Bracket

Secure L-bracket to wall using screws. Next, place valance up into L-bracket, securing it in place from above with screws.
