I continue working on my daughter's bedroom. As I told you, the crown molding was already installed following simple tricks to work those crown corners.
This time I went a bit out of my comfort zone trying to install a wooden cornice on the entire wall above the windows, with the crown molding at the top, and running the crown all around the room.
These two pictures that were put together show you how the room looked before. My daughter didn't want to have a pink room anymore, so the pink curtains with its valances had to go.
The wooden cornice was going to replace those valances.
Assembling the cornice itself was pretty easy, Crown and panel mouldings were attached to a long 12' 1x12 board, as this side view shows:
Well, the board and the panel moulding were put together off site. The crown had to be installed after the board was in its place.
The main problem was how to install that long board?!
The only solution I could find was to install "H supports"? (I don't even know how to call them, they look like an H ), on the wall, where the board could be nailed to. Like this:
As usual, making sure they were attached to the studs on the wall. A closer look:
At the end of the day this is how it looked.
After caulking, paint and some extras, this is the new architectural element in the room.
