We lived here in this house for six years now and it has taken me that long to finally re-cover the Cornice board in our office. I was never fond of the fabric choice from the previous owners, but it looked fine and matched everything so I left it be. Until now….
I got a wild hair last week and decided it was time! How hard could it be? Turns out…not that hard at all! Here are the steps I took to recover the cornice board.
- Measure the length and width of the board and allow extra inches so you can pull the fabric around.
- Cut your fabric to length
- I placed the fabric on the table and then laid the board across it.
- Start pulling the fabric tight (but not too tight) and staple it to the board, do this all around tucking corners as you go
- then re-hang.
So very simple and a great way to change the look of a room. I’m sure Natalie could probably tell us “how to make our own cornice board”….she’s pretty handy like that!
