What a way to add interest to your room! I dont’ have a fireplace but… I am working on making a faux one (or two) and Can’t wait for them to be done!
This particular post is a guest feature, but we have been doing this for the last 10 years on our homes and I LOVE this trick! So worth it if you want large crown moldings for less $!
In our house, the builder used cheap window and door casing for all of the base, but we dont’ have the cash to replace it all… but We do have really nice tall 6-8 inch base moldings (where we have gotten to it) for about .20 cents a linear foot.
I love this idea because it makes your builder grade cabinets look custom. It brings up your eye, and adds height to your room!
I know I show a lot of upgrades. But honestly the reason I love upgrades so much is it just feels less wasteful to me… AND you get the look you want. I think it is important to consider what can be done with what we have, before just chucking it the landfill! Just my little soap box! SORRY!
I love the look of wainscoting. I just love the architectural detail it gives a space! What do you think?
This is one of the best ideas EVER! Do any of you out there have a small bathroom? Need some extra storage… then this is the answer… use up that space in your wall!
