Last weekend we got the crown molding in the kitchen installed. We purchased 4 8-foot pieces of this MDF (medium density fiber board) molding.
So much better!
In this case, one piece is cut at 90 degrees and butts up flat against the wall at the end. The other piece gets the molding profile cut into it so it (hopefully) fits right up against the other piece.
On an outside corner the pieces are cut at a 45 degree angle and the top piece of the molding is cut longer.
This job took us (mostly Jeff) about 3 hours.
The painters are here now so next week I should be able to post the end result!
Here's Olive showing off the lovely burnt orange on her cheek. In the kitchen the color will actually be more of a brick red.
Be sure to check back next week for the final reveal (hopefully)!
