Crowning Moments.

There comes a time in our lives when crown moulding is like icing on the cake. Depending on your homes architecture and the look you strive to achieve within the confines of your abode, decorative trim just makes it all that much better looking. I lived in a 1940’s Cape in Arlington and LOVED the trim in my dining room, kitchen, bath, and sun room. With all intentions to carry it throughout the rest of the house, this busy girl just never got around to it. I now live in a gorgeous 1900’s Victorian in the District with deep and wide decorative trim around windows and doorways. Although crown moulding seems like  a logical choice in the main living spaces, I think it’s too much with the eclectic decor of which I adore. For you DIY’s who have an open weekend and a nearby Home Depot or Lowe’s, This Old House gives you a hand with a step by step plan to install crown molding, including selecting materials, installation, cutting miters, coping a joint, milling custom molding, and more… cause almost every cake could use a little icing.
