Easy DIY Bed Crown Cornice

I finally turned the toddlers bed into her “big girl” bed a few months ago.  Ever since I have been wanting to do something special for her room.  I have always loved bed cornices, but they are just so expensive. This (of course) had me thinking I could do it myself, so I did! I created this Easy DIY Bed Crown Cornice for under $50.  That includes everything, including the panels, which can be EXPENSIVE. Also, this is a NO SEW project.

I have found these Bed Crown Cornice pieces from $50 – 200 and up, I mean WAY up. If you have searched for these like I have, you know what I am talking about. It can be costly.  Needless to say, I have had a ton of fun with my power tools creating this one.  I also did this all by myself, so no worries on wondering if you can do this.

This post is to show you how to build the structure of the cornice, but you can always click here and be taken to the post that shows you how to upholster the cornice.

    Well, not sure if I feel I could make one now, but I sure do love it. What little girl wouldn’t want to sleep here?? If a parent could make this ahead of time, it would probably help the child move out of a crib. I love the monogram up top!

    I love the scroll panel & the pink panel you used! I have looked all over & can’t find any that don’t cost a small fortune…where did you get yours?

    • Jennifer says

      Hi! I actually picked the black and white scroll and the pink out of the window panel section at Hobby Lobby. I grabbed one black and white, cut it in half, and one pink panel. Hope that helps!

    the board on the wall, was it nailed? and how did you attach the cornice on to the board? or was the cornice attached to the wall directly? thanks!

    • Jennifer says

      Hi Beth. The board was placed into the wall with (4) 2 1/2″ screws going into STUDS. I then attached the cornice to the board on the wall with (4) 2 1/2″ inch screws. It’s not going anywhere! Hope that helps.:-)

    Hello, I had my husband make the bed crown cornice for me but we are having trouble trying to figure out you attached the two boards on the back of the cornice to the board on the wall. Can you please help?
    Thank you so much!!! By the way I love this project!! Wish I was this creative.

      Hi Jean! So glad you are making this project. It’s one of my favorites. Attaching it to the board on the wall: I literally had my husband hold up the cornice, and I took my extended arm for my drill (so I could get UNDER the cornice) and drilled in the long screws at angles through the cornice into the board on the wall. Hopefully that helps! I wish I would have made a video of exactly how I did it, or had someone take pictures as we attached it.
