How To Be Frugal And Stylish In Harsh Economic Times

I recovered this cornice board with used Asian embroidered silk panels that I found at a thrift store.


I purchased 8 used panels for $20.

For this project, I used one panel to recover the cornice board, one panel to drape over the head board, one as bed spread, one panel each on two single windows, for a fresh new look.

Here’s how you can make one like it.

Cornice board, fabric, staple gun, staples, scissors, pinking shears (optional)


Step 1. No need to remove previous pad and cover.

Step 2. Align pattern and spread fabric on a smooth flat surface.

Step 3. Place cornice board on fabric – center best as possible.

Step 4. Pull fabric snugly by small sections and staple to secure – continue all around inside.

Step 5. Adjust fabric to fit inside corners and staple.

Step 6. Trim excess fabric with scissors or pinking shears.

Time: 20 minutes
