Here is the before
And a close up of the design
1- used flat head screwdriver to pry staples off that held the fabric
2- I left the batting on for some padding
So I had this fabric from my grandmother. It's a blue velvet fabric that worked out perfect for this project. And goes well with our barn brown walls. I just cut it in half to fit both cornices.
I laid it down under the cornice and folded it over to make sure it would cover everything.
Then you start folding it over, pulling it tight, and stapling it in place. And that's it.
So what do you think?
