HD does sell 16" wide pine board, about 1" thick that would be fine for a shelf if you want a raw wood. They also sell 15 1/4" mdf pre painted in white/black/tan. The problem with a 16" deep shelf is supporting it. You could buy some heavy duty brackets but they would probably be $10-$15 each for such a big size

You can find brackets like this that have an integrated loop in the end, so you can mount a bar right below the shelfs edge to hang the drapery you were talking about.



Your definitely going to want to screw the brackets into the studs behind the drywall with a 2.5-3" wood screw. Be sure to have all of the brackets square and level so grandma is impressed
