In the picture below I’ve installed, primed and caulked, a whole bunch of moldings in this tall room.  If I still had the before picture of this room, you’d see just a big box with tiny trim and a whole lot of potential.

This room had the perfect geometry to decorate with a full compliment of moldings.

The first time I walked into this room I knew exactly what moldings I wanted to install.

There is nothing complicated about the moldings installed in this room.  If you can cut a 45 degree miter and shoot a nail gun and squirt some glue, then you can create rooms like this too!
