Viewing Project in Walls > Trimwork & Molding
Molding is great to cover gaps and mistakes. LOL
Hi Ron, Thanks for the video and easy explanations. I am currently deciding what to do with some trim in one of my rooms and my husband knows how to do all of this but is either too busy to help or impatient with me when we are doing it together. So...now I feel comfortable trying it on my own and I won't have to worry about asking him. Awesome!!! And thank you again.
Too much molding, overkill. Added work when new painting is needed.
last week my son and I tried crown molding - I had a lot of fun working with my son. caulk does wonders!
Made a big change with a little work, it was very good. congratulations, greetings, thanks.
Good information and is a nice touch. The only thing I would change is the chalking you use. A long time ago I started using a more flexible product called Vulcan. (no I do not sell it) I found it stays flexible and first got introduce to it when a large windows were being installed on a house I was working on. It holds up to the weather, but works just as well indoors. It sticks to the glass/whatever and does not pull away when dried. I find this is the best stuff to use in mobile homes where there is always expanding and contracting, and do not want gaps all the time. Depending on the part of the country you are at, different products with different names work just as well and will fill a 1/4 inch gap. They also come in colors, which can save on painting, if need be.
I don't think I've ever seen shoe molding on a carpeted floor. Did the pliability of the carpet present problems or did it make it easier to get a tight fit?
It's a wonder how moldings can make it look so good...
