craftsman style moldings

Cara’s guest bedroom after. It’s beautiful!


Thank you for your wonderful web site! This is our first home, a 1977 ranch with no personality. We have been wood workers, building our own furniture and cabinets, but now we get to take our skills to a new level.

We started with our kitchen, moved on to the guest bedrooms, then hallway, living room and we re currently working on the dining room.

So we have almost two years of decorating going on. It would only be fair send you separate emails of each project.

DIY moldings

A guest bedroom befitting a fine B&B.

I started with one-piece crown molding. And yes, it was a challenge. I duplicated that molding in bedroom number two and the hallway using a multi-layer technique that was so much easier!

Cara sent me a fantastic number of pictures and emails that illustrate her project very nicely. I’ll be posting the rest of them throughout the week leading up to Labor Day.
