Today the DW and I worked on the shade and valance. I made a slightly deeper and taller valance out of 3/8" plywood. Should have made it of 1/2" as my air stapler goes down to 1/2". Tried using a hand staple gun, but it wouldn't work on the plywood, too hard.
We added iron-on non fray tape all around the shade fabric and seam tape to make the bottom opening for the pull-down. Then we did a dry run and it all works fine. Not sure what I'm doing about attaching the faux leather to the valance. Either find a 3/8 stapler or remake it in 1/2" plywood.

Thanks, haven't really looked at the glass and saw the installation video a few months backs.

Anyone tried lexan / polycarbonate / plexiglass? Available from Amazon, inexpensive, can cut with a table saw or a Sabre saw. I used some to make a "storm window" to reduce condensation on the back window over the bed in our Solera - works great:
Amazon.com: Lexan Sheet - Polycarbonate - .236" - 1/4" Thick, Clear, 24" x 48" Nominal: Industrial & Scientific

Good option. I believe the window is 12"x22"x1/8". Thanks $17.23 with shipping.

Aceinspp, That stained glass window is nice, I believe that's what Bob Caldwell might be shopping for.

They are nice looking windows, but we defeats our purpose of viewing out.
I hope to finish the valance this weekend. I kinda feel like I'm doing this backwards and should have done the window first then the valance and shade.

Almost done with valance

Ran out and bought an air stapler. Covered the valance in faux leather. Just need to mount to wall.
