[This is part of Our Kitchen Molding Makeover series.]
I really like using this pre-primed MDF flat-stock from Lowes, and have used it in many of my architectural details.
I’m going to rip this molding in half and then I’ll use the exposed edge as the cornice front. I want the exposed edge of the crown molding cornice to have a crisper edge than what the stock profile comes with, so ripping the flat-stock in half is my first step.
Note: I will have to prime this edge, of course.
Next step: Install the lower crown molding detail and then the cornice.
