Question crown molding?

Ok now bare with me, I'm sure this is going to come out funny sounding(reading) since I don't know what I'm talking about really. I just painted my foyer and then up the stairs including the ceiling all the same color. Now my problem is the ceiling is connected to the dining room ceiling and I do not want to paint it the same color. So basically there is no end to the ceiling on the first floor. How can I seperate the 2 without it looking funny? I was thinking maybe crown molding seperating the 2 rooms? Like making a pretend doorway? I don't know...please help!!!

thanks

If there is not a great deal of difference in the colors, I would just change colors at the appropriate point.

People don't look up much.

The thing is I will notice the two different paint colors. I have pictures I just have to get them downloaded onto here. I don't want it to look sloppy and careless...
I just need some professional advice...

Hi Wendy and welcome aboard. You'll need to upload your pics to a site like snapfish.com & then post a link to where they can be viewed. I use it all the time & it's free & safe. A pic would help clear the fog & give us a better idea what you're workin with.

Post back or send me an e-mail if you more help with getting your pics up for viewing.

Sorry. I forgot to resolve the photograph source. It was loading off of my machine when I connected to the site. It is so fast that I did not notice. That is why I asked if they looked OK.

Try it again.

Wendy, if you're talking about putting up the crown there where that entryway is, I'd think you'd want to put up some sort of flat molding, orpossibly just a nicely stained piece of 1"x material. Crown goes in a corner where the wall meets ceiling.

Thanks for getting the pics up Chris, nice assist.

I agree with Awesomedell. A simple molding, or trim bad across the opening will do nicely.

Oops,

Trim BOARD. Sorry about the typo. If you get adventurous, you can try a piece of fancy fret-work across the ceiling too.
