Bringing home the modlings

You don’t need an SUV to bring home moldings, we used Jennifer’s race car.

[This is part of Our Kitchen Molding Makeover series]

We bought all three pieces of molding that make up our kitchen crown molding from Lowes Home Improvement.

And no, this is not a paid endorsement, we just no other place to buy moldings here in Tucson.

This isn’t the first time I’ve installed this crown buildup, so I knew exactly what I was looking for.  I long ago assigned this crown its own pattern number: CROWN MOLDING-103.

It’s time to stop writing and get downstairs and install some crown!
