Crown Molding Installed

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.

We purposely picked this style (flat) because we were placing it directly on the soffit and not on the ceiling.

We cut the boards down to the correct size and then used the nail gun to attach them to the soffit.

So much better!

The tricky part in installing crown molding is when you have an inside corner. Luckily, we had only one.

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!

For now, I'll leave you with pictures of Ed and Olive who are modelling my color scheme for the kitchen!

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.

And here's Ed giving us a nice full length photo of all the colors together!

Be sure to check back next week for the final reveal (hopefully)!
