I took my weekly trip to the thrift shop. They didn't have anything I was really interested In. On my way out in the corner I spotted four upholstered cornice boards!! How did I miss them? Sometimes they have things stuffed in the corner that you might miss. I looked at them, and thought what can I do with these? They were upholstered beautifully, but not the colors I wanted! No problem! I'll just change the fabric, but where can I hang these? I wasn't sure they would even fit on any of my windows. For two dollars each what did I have to lose! I took the plunge, and bought them. On my second trip around the store I found four panels for 50 cents each. Just the fabric I needed for the cornices! For $10.00 I had a good day!!
