Let’s start with the bad news: I did not get the crown moulding finished last weekend. That means no full room reveals yet! I ran in to some major issues in the fact that the crown moulding doesn’t fit between the ceiling and the cabinet tops (it’s too big). I think I figured out to fix it, but we are out of town for the next 2 weeks, so it will have to wait!
Good News: I finished out the window moulding and can give you sneak peeks of the tile that goes to the ceiling!
Let’s start with the before:
Since we had to build this wall out almost 8″ to keep the wall level, we knew we would need to customize the surround. To start, I used thin plywood along the sides and top and a thicker piece of pine to act as the window sill. It was ugly, but that was all going to be fixed in step 3:
Next, I cut and installed some corner moulding with a 45° angle corner. After that was installed, I caulked everything! Last step was to give it a nice coat of paint:
As you can see in the above picture, I was also able to finish some crown moulding around the tile, but really, it was so nice outside, I gave up and hit the pool instead.
I might get to working on that crown mounding in the next week or 2, but maybe not. Summer is just too unpredictable with way more fun stuff going on 🙂
