before and after craftsman victorian kitchen crown molding buildupWhen wallpaper, stencils, cascading silk vines and other decorating tricks no longer satisfy your quest for the ideal kitchen, then try installing a simple set of moldings and a fresh coat of paint.

three-piece crown molding buildupThis crown molding, CROWN MOLDING-106, is made of three pieces of mdf molding that I bought at Lowes.

This style crown is found in both Craftsman and Victorian style homes.

The door trim in the lower left of the above picture is a pure Craftsman style and is also made from two simple and inexpensive pieces of molding.

The wall paint is Benjamin Moore’s Regal product, and the finish is matte.

The trim paint is Benjamin Moore’s Satin Impervo product, the finish is satin, and the color is called White Dove.
