Rustic Charm Bedroom- Crown

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!!

That is such an easy trick to making moldings seem thicker and is MUCH more cost effective too! Hate boob lighting too! lol...you go girlie!
