We already have thin, one-piece molding on the ceiling. We going to install additional molding on the wall a few inches below the existing molding then paint both strips of molding and the space in between to make it look like several pieces of high-end crown molding.
If you already small one-piece molding on the ceiling, determine the size of the new molding. Here are a few things to consider:
- Adding dentil molding to a more basic molding can add drama and style to something simple.
- Adding skinny molding to the bottom of average sized moldings can make the entire molding seem larger, thus making your room feel smaller and less daunting.
- If you have a more rounded molding, try adding two pieces of a squared-off molding, one to each side of the original rounded section.
Measure to determine how much molding you'll need and then add 10 percent for waste.
