Did this video help you?

ursula w: What are the dimensions of the standard cornice board you mention?

Neelam Meetcha: Thanks for sharing, lovely

anisgt: I'm gonna do this to my closet doors :)

DIYHIPChicks: Never dumb question. To mount to wall. Attach metal "L" bracket to wall so it creates ledge. Secure 2 brackets (3 if wider than 36in) to wall with wall anchors if desired location is not on a stud. Around windows you will find studs (really called header over windows) but how high above frame varies. Be sure you mount bracket level in respect to each other. After you have attached brackets, simply postion cornice over protruding metal ledge & install small wood screws up into cornice.

DIYHIPChicks: how much space is there between molding and ceiling??

Jim Repp: Where can I see an explaination of wrapping fabric around tight concave corners or "v"s.

maryshome8: This would actually be a perfect video, other than the fact that the most difficult part of the project was skipped...how to wrap the curved portion.

DIYHIPChicks: You made my day, Please send pictures!

Fabi Blandon-Ali: thanks to you, I've built my cornices over the past weekend. I'm just waiting to find a fabric I like, cover and install. Thanks again for the easy tutorials : )

Jai Nel: I meant do you have a video on using piping for the cornice?

llittlef: I would like to do this on my front room window, all the way to the ceiling, (which is 8ft high). The ceiling is sloped upward from the wall, however. Would you make the top of the box square, or make it match the ceiling?? It might be too much trouble to make the slope on the box, but I don't want it to look like a weird gap.

DIYHIPChicks: Thanks for feedback maryshome8 I am developing more detailed advanced videos that will have more complicated steps in it. I wilt be sure to include that plus cording and other details. Happy DIY ing

DIYHIPChicks: How much you cover depends on taste, high of cornice itself and this consideration: You don't want it to sit too high on the window that you see the horizontal top edge of the window itself or the molding.

Fabi Blandon-Ali: I'm sorry I'm a beginner at this so please excuse the dumb question how do you install it to the wall?

Jai Nel: I am trying to replace my cornice, I know I can do it but do you have a video on the cording for the cornice? I love that finishing trim. (no sew if possible thanks).

DIYHIPChicks: That's a good observation. I'll be sure to toss that point into the next one I do. Thanks. Covering curves take patience and you have to cut into the arc and staple small sections as you go. This is the part I hate to do too.

Aaron Woodwell: You should have shown how to wrap the fabric around the concave corners, that's what I've always had trouble with

FOREVERSINCERE1: I know you explained how to install the cornices but I am having a hard time. Is there anyway you can make a video on how to install it please? Thanks!

DIYHIPChicks: Jim. When covering tricky spots - corners & v's, you need to staple fabric as close as you can go to the curve keeping it taut on front. In area of curve you have to make V cuts into excess fabric that folds over back, allowing to to bend. Cut V's every 1/2 inch along length of this area, don't let cuts wrap around to front & "play" with fabric. Fold it over and staple as you much as u can to keep it smooth. You may need to make cuts every1/4 inch. Staple often and take ur time. Any more?, lmk

DIYHIPChicks: I am working on more Home decor videos and DIY window treatments. Sorry I don't have it ready for you yet.

llittlef: ps- How much of the window would you cover with the box?

DIYHIPChicks: Sorry I was not able to film the hanging of the last ones. Homeowners hung them themselves. I am actually hanging cornices this week at a clients house and will be taping detailed install instructions. Please subscribe to my channel. I expect to get it posted by the weekend. So happy you made them yourself. Would love to see pictures if you can send to my email on my website

DIYHIPChicks: HI I do not have a piping video yet. I will add it to my list. I do sew my piping. It is possible to use a stitch witchery iron on-tape but not sure how easy that would be be with small strip of fabric. Sewing is a simple straight stitich if you have access to a machine. More videos coming soon if you wish to subscribe. Thanks for watching ;)
