The Difference Molding Makes

Ever since we moved in our house three  years ago,  I wanted crown molding!  I love that stuff!  I feel like  it adds so much to a room.  We finally went to the store to buy some and I couldn’t believe how many different sizes and designs there were.  My husband and I both wanted to get different kinds, so we bought a mixture to see what we liked the best.  Then I took pictures so I can see the difference.  The problem was that we only have the 3 inch baseboard so you are “supposed” to get a similar size molding on the ceiling.  I did NOT like that idea.  I wanted the biggest, surprised? lol!  I wanted the 5 inch stuff

Here is some pictures we took when deciding.

This was the smallest size, 3 inch.

Which one do you like the most?

Yup, MINE!!! (but we used a less dramatic design)

Much better, huh?

I am really happy with it so far.

We plan on doing the whole first floor, our foyer and our master bed and bath room too.  I am so excited!!!  Woo Hoo!

Do you have crown molding?

What size did you go with?

I hope that you have a great week!
