Last part of Ashlee's built ins is adding the crown molding.
I wanted the crown to go all the way a round the room.
The crown that came with the arch barely covered the built ins, so I decided to use some other crown I bought at the ReStore.
(If I find a good amount of crown molding I almost always buy it.)
Any way, it seamed a little small scaled for the room. I like to use what I have so I just decided to beef it up. Remember my stash of 16 foot MDF boards?
Well, I used them again.
I installed them flat on the ceiling around the perimeter of the room.
Next, I called Les in for back up,
'cause crown molding is a two person job around here!!
I primed and painted all the trim before I install it. After it is in place I just caulk and touched up the seams and nail holes. It's much easier than trying to paint the whole thing on the ceiling.
I am loving it!
Crown molding takes things to a new level; makes it seem nicer I think!!
Next time I tackle that ugly boob light!
Thanks for stopping by!!
