I recently participated in a feature wall contest using molding by Woodgrain. It was my first molding project. And it was so much fun! I created a design, measured, measured again, bought the molding...and here is are the details!
How to Install Molding for a Feature Wall
The entry wall to my home is a double tall 14 foot wall from ceiling to floor. I wanted to create some interest here on this bland and boring wall. Since this was my first molding project, I decided on a simple design.
I decided on a simple and basic wall molding. I added a decorative picture molding to dress it up a bit. Installation was pretty simple. I just used my Ryobi airstrike nailer.
I installed the picture molding along all of the edges. Then I caulked all of the lines on the entire wall, including the crown molding. I had always been terrified to caulk. Once I researched the best techinques, it turned out to be a very easy and very satisfying process!
After caulking, I painted the entire area with Benjamin Moore Simply White. Eventually I might add some color but for now, this wall is a stately and magnificent white.
