    *Choose moulding profiles and prefinished colors that suit the needs of your window design. Inteplast has many options to choose from. You’ll also need to choose an accent color that is complementary to your room décor. We chose the above profiles and colors just for demonstration purposes.

Measure

Measure
  • First, measure the width and depth from the wall you want for the Cornice.
  • Build a simple wooden 3-sided box Cornice, using 1”x6” finished pine with mitered corners.

Paint

Paint
  • Paint the wood Cornice in a complementary color used elsewhere in the room that also goes with your chosen moulding.
    Here we chose a dark taupe, which will go really nicely with the Whiskey Maple.

Assemble

Assemble
  • Cut each of the moulding pieces with mitered corners and fasten to the cornice with small finishing nails and contractor’s adhesive.
