I have a metal door with a set of windows on it, in my rental house.   The door is great, I love the style, but sometimes, I just don't want so much light pouring in, and well it just doesn't look finished.  The previous tenants had put holes in it to screw in a curtain rod holder, but it just looks tacky, so I decided to make a magnetic valance that would just attach to the door, so I wouldn't have to drill any new holes or try to figure out what kind of hangar they used before.
