woodworking applique onlay

Woodworking appliques are beautiful in simple white. If you feel bold though, add a splash of color.

[This is part of our Our Molding Makeover.  See all updates here.]

I thought I’d paint the center of this applique gold to see how it looks up against our blue ceiling border.

Come take a look and tell me what you think!

Test Paint Your Appliques

Compo appliques are shipped in their raw color of medium brown.  Here I’ve put a coat of primer on this one before throwing a test coat of gold paint in the center.

This or a very similar flower applique will go on the ceiling of our half bathroom, and I’m painting this one so I can test the size of the ceiling border.

Since it only took a few minutes, I dabbed two coats of gold paint in the center so I can see how it looks.

The applique is held up with two of those 3M double-sided sticky poster things.

This blue is something Jennifer is just flirting with, the final border color will probably be dark green.
