Cornice Boxes are a great way to add style to the top of your window for a reasonable cost. They can be made of wood and painted or stained or they can be fabric wrapped, as in this video. This cornice box was sourced from Century Shade and Blind Company. They offer the cornice box in 4″, 6″ and 8″ options. The one in the video is 6″. The return sizes can be ordered at various depths. It can be ordered with a contrasting horizontal banding as well. Depending on the style you need, this can be a useful solution.
