MASTER BEDROOM - FINALLY DONE



So, as I wrote in my post about Master Bedroom Finishing Touches Part 1, I had been wanting to do something with the window in our room for a while. I didn’t know what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it but I wanted something different. Do you ever get like that? It happens to me often. I just knew I didn’t like what I had.

To be honest, the curtains I have up are from the living room (its all about the frugality lol).At the time I needed something up to cover the windows and remembered that I had the red ones tucked away in a closet somewhere.
The red curtains are nice and they go but I felt like there was something missing. Something to tie the room together. Something a little fun and quirky…..
In steps DIY DECORATOR. I spoke to a lovely lady who was able to offer me a solution….in the way of a semi-custom cornice.
These things are genius! Basically, it’s a perfectly crafted, customizable wood window valance / cornice that can be adjusted to fit the space you have. They come in 7, 12 and 16 inch heights so perfect for any window really.
I received the 12” kit for my bedroom window. This is what came to my door.




First off let me say that the presentation even on the outside of the box is fab….I was impressed already!!
 
The DIY DECORATOR’s unique feature is that they guarantee that you can do this all by yourself. Well, I was going to put that to the test.
I got the kit out, measured my window (lucky for me it was the exact width I wanted) but if it wasn’t the instructions were SO CLEAR on what to do that I nearly got out the saw just to give it a go! *perhaps a little over excited*.

Anyhow, I followed the really easy instructions and all I seemed to need was my trusty best DIY friend of Mr. Staple gun! I added the foudation material that they provided and then stapled the batting/wadding down and then stretched my gorgeous floral fabric *hubby was less than impressed with my floral fabric choice* and I was ready to get it installed.






It's already notched out for easier cutting if needed!





After a few screws and some brackets were on, I had a gorgeous window!!
Not only did the kit come in lightning fast speed. I t came with fully instructions, images and of course the references (like how-to videos) on their site. And in the end my room is finally complete!!



Cannot recommend DIY DECORATOR enough .
