Rural Decor: How To Recover A Cornice Board For Under $25

How To Be Frugal And Stylish In Harsh Economic Times

In this DIY project, I learned how to recover a cornice board with used Asian embroidered silk panels that I found at a thrift store.

Supplies:

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)

Instructions:

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
