DIY Cornice Boards

Like a lot of my projects, I found my inspiration from photos like these on

Wrap around cornice with nailheads
Cornice with button tufting
I love the simple look of cornices, specifically in the kitchen.  They can be designed to fit any design style depending on the fabric and embellishments you use.  For me, I wanted something with clean lines that would add a bit of color in the kitchen.  I hate ruffled valances and other cheesy "kitchen" curtains.  So with a sheet of plywood (cut to my measurements), a few screws, staple gun, batting and fabric I made my own cornice boards one a Saturday.  Here they are:

So now the pop of blue from the cornices in the kitchen, nicely tie in with the blue stenciled bookcases (DIY steps to that project here).

I will post the DIY steps in another post.  I first need to gather all the photos from the actual project and put it all together :)
