Window Treatments with Cornice Boards

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday.  For once, I feel like I accomplished a lot this weekend.  I was able to work on two DIY projects for the One Room Challenge, so little by little I feel like my space is coming along.

Also, last week, the fabric for my window treatments arrived.  I am going with a pale pink silk fabric for the drapes and I want them to look similar to these.

While the dupioni silk drapes are going to be amazing, I feel like the windows need more of a “wow” factor as the bed is under them and they are the focal point of the room.  Then I thought a cornice board might do the trick.  Cornice boards are traditional, but I feel like they are making a come-back.  I adore how they dress up the windows below.

So whimsical, right?  It’s all in the details!

If you do a search on Pinterest  you can find a thousand tutorials on DIY cornice boards. However, I want one with a unique shape and given that the One Room Challenge has only has 4 weeks to go, I don’t think I have it in me to build one from scratch.

That is when I ran across a company called Ready to Cover where they will custom cut a cornice board for you and then all you have to do is upholster and install it.  Perfect for a half-hearted, time-pinched DIY’er like me.  DIY without the power-tools!

I think I am going to go with a shape like #2 where there is enough detail, but it is simple enough that upholstering it won’t be a nightmare.  I am soo glad I ran across this company.  They can customize any design, make headboards to match and they ship for free.  The cornice board itself is very affordable as well.  They also offer an entire line of ready to cover home decor items (headboards. decorator tables, etc.)

I am so glad I found this company as it is going to save me so much time.  A total game-changer. Now I want to have cornice boards with all my window treatments.

Well, stay tuned Thursday to see the progress I have made in my little Audrey’s bedroom for the One Room Challenge.
