I love Pinterest for many reasons.
It's the source of inspiration for what to wear, what to cook, how to decorate, and so much more.
It is also my go-to for project tutorials.
Why re-invent the wheel when someone has already done so and conveniently pinned it for you?
So was the case when I recently went on a mission to add some personality to the windows in our upstairs hallway by making our own window cornice.
Here's what the hallway was looking like before
(note the uneven windows, that's what you get with a very old house like ours):
And here is the after:
Thanks to this pin, I had a great step-by-step tutorial on how to build our own window cornice.
It was pretty easy to do.
The only difference with ours was that we had to work around this angled part of the ceiling.
The fabric I chose was Serena & Lily's Captiva fabric in chambray.
Chris measured, cut, and assembled the wood for the cornice.
Then I wrapped it in the batting and stapled on the fabric.
The last step was to hang it.
I'm happy with the end result and Chris is happy this project is over so he doesn't have to hear the word cornice again.
Have a great week!
