What can you do with a pine board, a piece of crown molding, and decorative trim this weekend?
You can separate two rooms that share a long wall with this combination of decorative molding. This way the rooms can be painted different colors giving each room its own identity. By adding this 1, 2, 3 combo of molding I was able to create a nice delineation between my kitchen and family room as well as add some architectural interest to the space.
This doorway used to look exactly like the one further down the wall until I installed the board, molding, and decorative trim above it.
I measured the space bewteen the ceiling and the existing doorway trim and cut the pine board to fit. The board was the same thickness as the pre-existing door frame trim. I attached it with liquid nails and a nail in each corner. I then added the crown molding at the ceiling line and on top of the board. I used the decorative trim piece to cover the joint between the existing door frame trim and the pine board.
A little Spackle to cover the nail holes, some caulk, and 2 coats of Sherwin Williams Alabaster and I was done pretty much 123…
