Faux "Crown" Moulding

Right now our garage is jammed packed with garage sale crap treasures and it will stay that way until next month. So I don't have a lot of room to work, not to mention I have no idea how to do a spring angle and really hang crown moulding. So to put a finishing touch on my walls in the dining room I just used regular base moulding...I think (from what a neighbor told me) it's baseboard moulding flipped upside down. Whatever. It looks good and it was so much cheaper not to mention easier to do then crown.

Before (with the old paint and no moulding):

After (new paint and moulding up):

On a side note, I was out shopping with my youngest this morning and it was about time to pick my oldest up from school, I arrived in the parking lot of the school and realized I had left my purse in the shopping cart at the last store I was at. Needless to say I FLEW back there and of course it was gone. I got home, in tears, and called my husband to have him cancel my credit cards when within 5 minutes I received a phone call from the lady who found it. Instead of turning it in (to possibly dishonest people) she took it home with her and contacted me. I went right away to get it and everything was still in there, what an angel. It's so nice to know that there are such good people out there in the midst of all the global chaos. Sigh.

  1. What a heart-stopper! Thank goodness the lady was honest enough to call you. That could have been a nightmare.
