I do have one question however, how did you fasten them to the wall?

It probably looks a little light in the shop, but here's what it looks like installed in the unit. We had already redone the flooring removing the carpet and installing the plank look.

Same way they were before. There were three wood blocks screwed to the inside of the valance and then to the bottom of the overhead cabinets. There were also two "L" brackets secured to the wall at the bottom corners.

Nice job Dennis. I'm going to remove the day night shades and put in MCD's, might just borrow your idea and change out valances too.

Well, I finally found some time to do the windows, but my problem is do I have to remove the blinds to get the valances down? I look up there and can't see how to remove them.

My day/night pleated shades had hidden screws near each end that attached them to the window boxes. You had to pull the first pleat back to see them. Once the shade was removed it exposed a couple more wood screws that went up through the window box into the cabinet above. Once those and the side angle brackets are removed the unit is free.

I repainted a few of my fabric valances that had an awful floral print. Worked great and more importantly my wife is happy with the result.
I used Duplicolor fabric paint from Oreillys. See my post about it here on page 78 of my 2004 wrecked Monaco rebuild project.

https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/jus...444980-78.html

Also on page 73 (as another posted) you will find my easy Monaco Natural Cherry finishing technique which I highly recommend as you can't tell where I have installed new wood or touched up existing areas. In my '04 Monaco I simply sprayed the raw cherry with semigloss lacquer. One can also respray right over existing damaged or dry areas without even taping adjacent wood areas off... no dry edges as the lacquer melts right in to existing original finish. I have used all sorts of wood finishes over the years, but this is so simple compared to any of them and it is the same finish as original.
