It's no secret: custom window treatments are EXPENSIVE. Excessively so, it seems. That's why I flipped my lid when I spotted this tutorial for making your own DIY cornices (those fancy box-like things at the top) for about $15 a piece. Yes, fifteen dollars.
It's almost unbelievable, but I've seen the tutorial and the photos and the cost break-down... and I can tell you this is for real! Erin from Domestic Adventure created these cheerful yellow cornices for a new nursery (now finished - check out the big reveal right here). We love the final outcome!
But, back to those cornices. To make your own, you will need:
- pine boards or plywood
