Lesson Learned: Crown Moulding

I found out the hard way that priming the crown moulding after it is installed is waaay more difficult than priming before it is installed. Luckily, I only got around to installing 2 pieces before the cabinets went up, so I got all of the other pieces primed and painted last weekend while I enjoyed yet another beautiful weekend. (Am I still in Portland?)

Now I'm off to fill nail holes, sand, and prime again. All over my head. Ugh.


  1. Hi!
    I just dropped in by way of Elizabeth Hill Cottage. I love the house! I've always had a soft spot for Craftsman Style homes and yours is great. Love all that you've done with the kitchen, especially love the vintage repro appliances and the flooring. I'll check in later to see what you're up to next! Thanks for sharing your remodel.

  2. I know you haven't posted in a while, but hopefully you check your comments... Your blog is listed in the spring 08 issue of Cottages and Bungalows magazines, (pg.11)along with our other houseblog neighbor, Fixer-Upper.
    I was flipping through and thought "I know that house".
    Congrats. :)

  3. Jen,

    Yeah, I haven't posted in a while because I haven't done any work (on the house) in a while. I hope to get the kitchen 100% in the next few weeks so I can finally post some "after" pictures.

    I got an email back in September from the Cottages and Bungalows people who said it would be in the fall issue. When it wasn't there I gave up. Guess I'll have to go grab a copy so I can claim my 15 minutes of fame! Thanks for the heads-up.
