Measure Twice, Cut once, and Pray without ceasing

I made this cornice for a designer. It had to be a perfect fit, I think it turned out pretty good! The cornice fits flush against the wall without any returns. When the installer lifted the cornice up into the spot, it sat on the window frame, and was such a snug fit, he was able to leave it up there while he climbed down from his ladder to reach his drill. It's held up there by 2 screws hidden under the welt at the top.


  1. Hi Zona, I originally saw your post about fabric covered shutters on the Window Treatments and Slipcover workroom Community page. I followed your profile and linked over here to check out your blog. I had a similar cornice conundrum and also had to custom fit a cornice around some crown molding. If you are ever in that situation and need moral support, give me a holler. I made a blog entry about it on drapery panels.

  2. Whether formal or casual, full length draperies and valances add to style any room.
