Creating A Taller Crown Molding Look

Creating A Taller Crown Molding Look
party highlight by Creations From My Heart

I’ve been SLOWLY working on the master bedroom transformation.

  So…… in the mean time I’m would love to share with you another project that  mainly my hubby completed.

Here’s what the project looked like when we began.
The bathroom had nice dental molding,
 just not BEEFY enough for my liking.

Once my husband agreed to do the project for me, I quickly ran up to the wood working store to get the supplies.  I figured while he was in the mood to do the work I better get the wood, just in case he had second thoughts about doing the project.

I purchase a panel molding that was about 1″ wide. He cut and mitered the corners and placed the piece of trim about 2.5″ below the dental molding.  He used my handy dandy air compressor and staple gun to attach the molding to the drywall.

I then primed, painted and glazed the all the wood trim and the piece of drywall that was between the dental molding
 and the panel molding.

I love adding a glaze to dental molding. 
 The stain sticks to all the indentations of the wood
 and really adds a nice detail.

Now that’s the look I wanted.
some nice BEEFY molding that didn’t cost a fortune!

This was a very inexpensive project with a big transformation. The panel molding was much easier to do than the crown molding.  At  least that’s what it seemed like to me.
  You’ll have to ask my husband about that!
Maybe you also noticed the walls are different.  When we had the hardwood floors refinished, the old wall paper was damaged so I had to find a replacement paper.  Well, you know how that goes….
One thing lead into another and the powder room got an entire face lift.  I’ll share that with you next week.

  As for now I better get working on the master bedroom transformation!
