I wanted this to go over my bathroom window blind. I'm too tight to spend money so I thought I would make it;-)

Found everything I needed at the Restore except for the material. I took the saw, cut the board the same height of the board and nailed them down each side. I had some old foam that I covered the front of the board with and covered that with the material I had chosen. I wrapped it around the sides to cover the boards I had nailed in place and stapled it to the board that would be against the wall.

    Wonderful job! Love the fabric too! Nice choice. Just an idea. If you want the room to look a little bigger. Just move the cornice up towards the ceiling about 3-4 inches. It will make the room look taller. Great job!

      Thank you. I did not move it up because I hate putting holes in my walls. I chose to use what was already there. Thanks for your comment on the fabric. I loved it too!
