Cornices in Master Bedroom

I love the cornice boxes over the windows in my master bedroom. I saw the idea a few years ago in a magazine and kept the picture so that hopefully I would have some one day. My husband built these a while back and I have been very happy with them. I painted them white and then aged them with some stain. I was going to leave them white, but they just looked too stark.



Another thing I have to mention that I am so excited about is that my husband is in the process of installing new windows in our house. Our house was built in 1973 so we have been needing them bad. I have always kept the blinds closed in the rooms where the windows looked the worst. Our bedroom was one of those rooms. Now I am not embarrassed to open the curtains and show the outside. We are not sure if we'll put the blinds back up. Mine stay so dusty. Could it be because they never get cleaned?! He is almost done with the back of the house and has got to special order the ones for the front. It ain't cheap, but we are saving lots by him doing it. I am so proud of him because it is not easy job. If I can get my bedroom cleaned up enough, I'll show the rest of it tomorrow. See ya!

I love the cornices. They lool great. I'm putting this idea in my files!:)

I know what you mean about the windows. Our house was built in '74 and it's in desperate need of windows too. But, one thing at a time right? We are gearing up for a new roof this fall.

Hello Angie, this is only my second time to your blog and I am liking what I see ;) The cornices are gorgeous and wish my husband could build something like that...haha. I LOVE those curtains too! Did you make those out of fabric? If so, what is the name of the fabric? If not, do the curtains have a name? Sorry so many questions but I just must know! Thanks Angie and have a blessed week!
