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 website video!

I received my 3 cornice kits from your company just a couple of weeks ago. I've never done ANYTHING with tools or fabric before and I am so happy with the results! If I can do it, anyone can. Thanks so much for making such easy-to-use kits!

You have a great product. Thank you. This is the second time I have covered the same board (change of room decor). I like my design a little better this time. I just ordered another to cover - will send photo when complete.
Love your product.

Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with your product. We used the 12" cornice for our 12' span sliders going to our lanai. Very simple to put together and very well made. We received the cornice on the scheduled day. Also liked the informative videos on how to cover and hang the cornice. Thanks again for a great product! Mike -The Villages, FL
You wanted to know---I have to tell you--- I am very surprised. I am into projects and have spent $000 on all kinds of Cornices. I know when materials are good and made to specs and go together well. I have to tell you---you have a good product---this is the best Cornice in our Florida Home and the one that cost the least!

I was able to have the cornice installed for a family get together. I also want to thank you for a great product. How I love it! My husband and I think it really creates a wonderful look in our more contemporary setting. We had priced out a custom cornice at Home Depot for $559 and we created this for $216 (cornice kit, batting plus a good quality home décor fabric). What a great savings, thanks!

I swear if I could I would put your cornices on every window! I am going to use these 3 in the den. My Husband marked the 14 foot long Cornice as he was putting it up. This was at 8:30 in the morning. By 10 am I had removed the damaged covering and recovered my Cornice. What a GREAT Kit!

When I first started to look into this project (several years ago), I was so taken aback with the expense of having the cornices done professionally and couldn't justify the cost. It was truly outrageous. I had given some thought to making the cornices but I knew the weight would be a problem and would be difficult to install. Being as stubborn as I am, I decided if I couldn't have what I wanted I would just do without. Well, many years later I found your website and I was ecstatic.
The kits are everything you said they would be. EASY, EASY, EASY to assemble!! I don't think it's possible to mess up this cornice unless one miss-measures the length. The design is brilliant and so lightweight. They are now covered and look fantastic. I finally have the "WOW" factor in sight. Once I found you, this project was a walk in the park. The finished product was certainly worth the wait.

Very Clever Product!

I finished my decorating project using several of the cornice kits, and wanted to share the results with you. I really enjoyed using your kits. The cornices in the corner were somewhat of a challenge but came out great. The long cornice was sturdy enough that I didn't need to use the center brace. I will definitely recommend your product to friends, and am looking around for my next project.

Thanks again - you've helped me decorate my house without going into debt!
I love these things, they're great!

… my cornice kit was delivered late on Friday...and I love it! It's done and hung! I must say this has been my most successful craft project in recent memory. I did quite a bit of research before buying - and wanted to thank you for making your kit available to the public. I'm sure I will buy again in the near future.
Lori - Buffalo Grove, IL
My Cornices are fabulous! Your quality is excellent, and directions are easy to follow. A custom decorator could NOT have done better!
Pat - Surprise, AZ
This is my first finished product! I will be doing another one just like it in the same room as soon as my kit gets here. I love it! Stephanie - Cary, NC
The Kit was easy to use and looks great. I had a baby shower at my house this weekend and got lots of compliments on it!
Thanks, Amber - New York, NY
We love your product. The instructions were very clear and everything went together with ease. Tell us what you think. More after pictures available if you would like. Thank you for developing such a great product. Marianne & Jim - Scappoose, OR
Attached please find pictures of my completed cornice. I think it looks wonderful.
The kit was easy to assemble. Your instructions for covering the cornice were right on, and hanging it was easy. I have recommended your project to all my friends and family. Once again a great project with easy to follow instructions for a beautiful end result. Sande - Cadyville, NY
Well, we finished our project…and it turned out beautiful. Thank you so much for your product!
Peggy - Portland, OR
I wanted to let you know that I put my cornice together (150") and it is absolutely stunning. The instructions were very easy to follow and other than buying a staple gun there wasn't much else needed.
Thanks...I love it!!!
Cathy - Deerfield Beach, FL
Thanks so much, once I'm finished with my rooms I'll send some pictures.
It really is beautiful and easy to do. I'd be happy to be a testimonial
or reference for you.

You guys are great!! I told my husband how nice you were to work with when I placed the initial order!! I will be hanging two Kits.
Thank you so much.
Gail - Baltimore, MD
We just finished putting up our cornice and it looks great. It was super easy to do and very professional results. Ours is 130" long so it's big! We are using it with matching curtains to cover a home theater screen. We're really pleased with the results.
Steffi - New Windsor, NY
I completed my cornice project with the D.I.Y.cornices I purchased from you. They are quite beautiful so I wanted to share them with you. They were very simple to put together & cover! After comparing the high price for ready-made products, I was thrilled to discover your products!
Thanks so much for helping me with this project.
I love my DIY cornices. The kits were easy to assemble. I will definitely be recommending DIY cornice kits to my friends.
Pete - Gig Harbor, WA
Update; I finished installing the last cornice. Everything looks great, just as your instructions w/cornice parts. Couldn't be happier. You have a great product!
Lou - Struthers, OH
I have bought 2 of your cornice to date and just love them.
Cathy - White Lake, MI
WOW!!! My husband and I put up our 11-foot Cornice yesterday. And it is gorgeous!!
I have wanted a Cornice to cover the tops of the blinds for years. I used one of the foam kits, but it sucked. Every time we went to close the blinds they would fall -- and it was always a pain to put them back up.
Your Cornice Kit was perfect. I covered it in suede cloth. We hit the wood framing when drilling through the drywall, but that made my husband happy because he felt it was more secure and we did get the wood screws you suggested.
Your instructions were excellent!! Thanks you for making me happy
