It's all about CROWN MOLDING!

We have a new resume bullet. We have absolutely dreaded starting the crown molding on this flip because in our past experiences with it--we failed miserably. Well, the old saying "...the right tools..."

Wow! For Father's Day last year I got Ken this thing called Magic Mitre which professed to at least help someone cut molding for an older home with odd corners. I thought it might come in handy if Ken started throwing saws.

Crown molding defies logic ~ even if you have a step-by-step instruction manual or a professional showing you how to cut the wood.

We managed to crown the spare bedroom, the master bedroom, the sitting room/office, and the hallway (which we originally said we weren't even going to crown) and didn't ruin one single piece of molding!

Hard to believe but the first room we tackled was the room farthest away from the front door. And check out those interior and exterior angles! Beautiful!
