EASY Reclaimed Wood Cornice

 
I'm almost finished with our bedroom update.  One of the many projects in this budget makeover is this reclaimed wood cornice.  There is only one window in the room so I wanted to make it a little special.
 Total cost was about 6.00 for the hardware and it was super easy!  After I measured and determined the size I needed, I cut the wood and added the braces to hold the pieces together and the brackets that would attach the cornice to the wall.  Once it was put together I just ran my sander over the edges and top to 'clean it up' a bit.
 Hanging it was definitely a two-person job but that was the only part that took a little time, making sure it was level and centered over the window.
 And that was it!  Simple, quick but with a big impact I think!


On any given week (depending on how busy I am!) I love to participate in Link Parties.  These gals put a lot of time and effort into hosting these parties so I always want to show my appreciation by directing my readers to these blogs.

  1. I can see that even though we don't share the love of fall, we still have some things in common. Reading your "about me" I see that we enjoy many of the same things! I love the cornice! One of my brothers made my mom a set of cornices for our livingroom windows when I was a little girl and every time I see cornices, sweet memories come to the surface. I really like the look of the old wood...great project! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  4. It looks wonderful, Lauren! My hubby made me a wooden box out of old barn wood, the Christmas before he passed away. I keep it always on my dining room table. Your cornice board reminds me of it.

  17. Your cornice certainly is a special addition to your bedroom. And thanks for the directions. I've never made "furniture" before and had no idea it could be this simple to make.
    Thanks also for the list of places to link up. I will be checking out some of them.
