Crown Molding

Yesterday crown molding was installed in the Cottage.

The molding on this side of the Cottage is painted to match the ceiling and so is not highly visible.

The living room side has always has a sort of trim between the ceiling and the walls.

No molding between the ceiling and the wall.

The ceiling on the other side of the main beam was bare.

Crown molding is being applied all around the room.

The carpenter installed white cornice molding all around.

The walls are “Siamese Eyes” and the ceiling is a pale grey-green custom mix.

I noticed it really highlights the blue wall and pale green ceiling.

Eventually the door to the attic will be painted the same color as the ceiling.

It’s a nice finishing touch.

Are you handy at installing trim?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
