Breaking The Mold

We promised more photos of our two guest bedrooms sporting their new crown molding, so here they are. First, we bring you the second bedroom, with crisp white three inch molding to swank things up:

And the third bedroom (also known as our old converted dining room) looks mighty fine with the same polished white molding adding some architecture:

But the real transformation took place in the master bedroom, with the addition of an 8 inch plank of wood that makes the wardrobes look like custom built ins. Stay tuned for the juicy reveal tomorrow. We can hardly wait…

That’s what John thought this gift represented when he unwrapped it on Christmas morning.

Crown Molding

But by around his third guess he’d cracked the code: crown molding. And his gift finally came to fruition this week when our crafty installer returned to hang beautiful 3 inch molding in our living/dining room and three bedrooms. The finished product is polished and purty. And best of all, John didn’t have to lift a finger. He works hard enough around here as it is, so I was glad to let him sit this one out.

Here are some detail shots:

And here’s the whole living / dining room in all of its crowning glory:


It looks just as dapper in the bedrooms, so stay tuned for some more pics. In the meantime you can find John not complaining about a sore back or a nail gun injury. Life is good.
