Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm Nicki, a mom to 2 little boys, the surviving wife of an Army Captain, a sometimes DIY-er, a decorator of all holidays, a crafter, and a pinner of many. Above all though, I'm a completley obsessive, over-achieving mom who needs to be in control of just about everything.

Create faux crown moulding or enhance your existant moulding!
When I moved into my house, I thought my downstairs had the most beautiful crown moulding. I was here at least 6 months before someone pointed out to me that it was faux. Am I really that non-observant? Upon closer look, I realized that my friend was correct. Here's what it looks like.
How to do it yourself:
Hang a piece of traditional 3 1/2" crown moulding flush with the ceiling. Approximately 2"-2 1/2" below, hang a piece of 1" moulding. Then paint both pieces of moulding, along with the space in between, the same color. This gives the illusion of beautiful, high-end crown moulding!
