Let me start this out by saying, I lack all of the main components it takes to be a successful do it yourselfer- patience, attention to detail and a prescription to Aderall. I prefer to have a full time job so I can pay someone to do my dirty work. Unfortunately, that is usually not the case and I end up having to do it myself. If I can do it, so can you...
We had some old cornices left over from a previous project.
I got 3 yards of foam and 3 yards of fabric and stapled them to the boards.
I used 10 yards of grossgrain ribbon 1 1/2 in. thick and glued that sucker onto the cornice board.
We are still waiting on Ikea curtains to come back from the dry cleaner. I cannot wait to show yall the finished product.
*My friend Catherine was a life saver and suggested using Fabri Tac to glue the ribbon onto the fabric. I tried a couple of other things and nothing else would hold. **
