Last week I got these pelmets finished and will be fitting them tomorrow. They are for a customer who I built some oak units for last year. The two with the dentils are to go in the hobby room to match the furniture I made. The other two are for the bedrooms to match the oak furniture in there.

Got these fitted today and not only came away with a cheque but two more commissions! My customer wants another pelmet making for the main bedroom and another top for the chest of drawers that I refurbished. (I knew an oak top on a mahogany chest didn't look right...customers always right though )
Both the front and rear bedroom pelmets were a simple fit.
The two in the downstairs hobby room were a little more difficult due to the tight dimensions but my measurements were spot on I am glad to say with just a little nick out of the sides.
The front:
The rear:
My customer was very pleased with them and has ordered another for a bay in the main bedroom. He also spoke of benches for his soon to be built shed.

Well done Mailee, great looking pelmets. More work coming in and money in your pocket too! Doesn't get better than that.

Great stuff as always Alan. I love pelmets but they're not really in fashion nowadays are they? TLOML said that ours had to go when we last decorated each room that had them. They are not really gone though! I've carefully stored them in the roof of my garage!winkThey'll be back I reckon.

They look great and elegant. Great additions to the house, make the place more pleasant and they match the wooden walls or divisions. Great job!
