Ceiling molding

I would like to 'finish' the walls in my bedroom by applying ceiling/wall molding. How do you attach the molding to the wall? And how can I avoid having to cut the corners at 45 degrees?

Traditional crown or bed moulding at the ceiling is nailed in place.

There is no way I know of to avoid the angle cut - actually you'll also need a coping saw to finish the installation.

This may be a project you need to hire out...

Hi there,

If you want the effect of crown molding maybe you can use Licrusta or anaglypta borders. The borders are embossed and can be glazed which is quite a nice effect.
Another option would be to bring the ceiling color down, maybe 6" or so. This method will also give you the "feeling" of crown molding.
If you have a qusetion on "glazing" you can check on www.fauxacademy.com

Hope this helps
