My room really needed a cornice board. I am SO happy with how it looks! I am really glad I made it!
Follow these step by step instructions to make your own!
This may not look it, but this sliding glass door is huge! My cornice board was 9 feet long to cover this door!
Lay your fabric out and cut it large enough to wrap around. Then use the staple gun and attach the fabric. Remember to make sure that your pattern is straight on the front! Also, make sure you pull evenly so you don’t have your pattern go up or down where you pulled too hard.
Then it should look like this:
Now you want to make it look good from the back for two reasons. 1 – You can see it from inside because it is so high and 2 – Because you can see it from outside! I used black felt to cover the back. It was cheap and looks good. It also would stop light from coming through so you could see the frame on the front. Just fold it over and use the staple gun to secure it.
I used this kind of picture hook hanger to hang it. You need one for each side.
It was SO worth it! I love how they finish off my room!
