By installing plasterboard cornice yourself you can not only achieve professional results but save money as well. Faye demonstrates how easy it is to do using a Mitreplan from Mitre 10.

The first step is to measure your lengths and make mitre cuts. It can be tricky to get it right, but if you take your time and use a mitre box and hand saw, it’s not hard.

Faye started with a short length, and applied a 10mm wide bead of cornice cement to the back edges of the cornice. She then pressed it firmly against the ceiling and wall. Clean off any surplus cement with a damp sponge.

Faye used nails (driven only into the wall under the cornice) to hold the cornice in place until the cement begins to cure. They can then be removed and the nail holes filled with cornice cement. Don’t drive nails through the cornice – it’s unnecessary and difficult to plaster over.

The same process is repeated right around the room, a piece at a time.
The MitrePlan gives you all the information you need to get the job done.
