Here is What Our Customer's Are Saying!
I finished my cornices (all 5 of them) & LOVE them! If I can do it (76
years old) then anyone can. My husband, Gary, helped me with the
installation (he's 77). I thought that while Gary & I would hold each
end, we might need a third person to mark the wall for installing the
brackets for the longest cornice (113 inches). However, the 2 of us
were able to hold & mark without additional help, since the cornice is, as
advertised, very light-weight. My kids & grandkids were pretty amazed,
& my daughter-in-law took pictures of them & said she planned to purchase
some for her home remodeling project. She has a decorator helping her,
but I told her it would be "a piece of cake" for her to do it herself.
Thanks for your invention!......and prompt delivery. They are so easy
to make, following the instructions that accompany them, as well as the
Regards, Ila & Gary, Meza, AZ

D-I-Y Cornice Frame Kit
The aim of every Do-It-Yourself Decorator is to end up with a
project that goes together simply and looks like it has been
produced by a professional.
Sadly, the foam, cardboard or composition kits do not produce
professional results. The profile and finish of these kits does not match
the profile and finish of a professionally built cornice...an immediate
give-away that this is a homemade project. This is not true in the case of
the D-I-Y Cornice Frame Kit.
The D-I-Y Kit provides that professional look because it is made from
laminated wood that has the strength, profile, and finish of the material
used by the professionals.
The D-I-Y Cornice Kits are the only kits that provide for a completely
finished back. Since the back of the cornice is visible to you and your
guests we feel this is important for the overall professional results of the
Both homemade and professional wood cornice frames can weight well over
60 pounds. The D-I-Y Cornice has solved this problem.
The unique patented design of the D-I-Y Cornice Frame is based on a tongue
and groove ladder frame construction. This makes the frame very strong,
solidly rigid and very light. A 96 inch finished covered cornice frame
weights under 20 pounds. This makes for a cornice that is easy to hang on
the wall and does not create a safety problem.
The use of laminated wood ensures that the frame will last for years and
will not warp, twist, snag or disintegrate over time like other materials
can. The robust construction allows you the freedom to remove, re-cover, and
re-hang the cornice many times easily and quickly. Check-out the
Hanging The Cornice
section of the website for more information.
The D-I-Y Cornice Frame provides
the most clearance from the wall of any kit we have seen. A
full 5 3/4 inches is provided after
the cornice is covered. This clearance means your cornice can top any window
treatment, from a full drapery to wood shutters, or 3
1/2 verticals. Plus, a simple cut with a wood saw can shorten this
clearance from 5 3/4 inches to as little as 3
inches (useful in topping window treatments that are hung inside the frame).
But if 5 3/4 inches is just not enough, the D-I-Y Cornice Frame Kit offers
the option of purchasing Ends that provide a total of 9 inches clearance
from the wall. Just select this option on the ordering page.
The frame design makes the D-I-Y Cornice Frame
Kit easy and quick to assemble by ANYONE no matter what the skill level. In
just one short afternoon with the use of common tools you can have a cornice
frame sized, assembled and covered! Covering the Cornice is
accomplished with a simple wrap method that provides a completely covered
front and back for that professional look.
Check-out the Covering & Assembly
section of the website for more information.
Along with professional results and
ease of assembly, most Do-It-Yourself Decorators are looking for economy.
Here the D-I-Y-Cornice Frame Kit shines. An eight foot cornice frame ready
to accept batting and fabric costs only $9.22 per foot. Professional built
Cornice Board Frames cost on average $25.00
The design of the kit also makes maximum use of the
materials available with minimum waste. The 12 inch high cornice was
purposely chosen because it takes 27 inches of fabric to wrap & cover the
front and back.
Since most Home Decorator fabric comes in 54 inch width
and most patterns repeat every 27 inches (whether you split the fabric down
the middle or put together repeating panels), there is no waste. A 4 foot
long cornice can take as little as 1 1/2 yards
of fabric to completely cover it. Even the longest kits only require 2
1/2 yards. The same economies are also available in the 7 inch high
Cornice Frame Kit. Check-out the Fabric Tips section of the website for
