Install Crown Molding
One of the easiest ways to give a room instant elegance is to add crown molding.
If you’re not sure what size you need, get samples of different sizes, sold by the foot, from the home center and place each piece up against your wall.
Next, compare it to the molding around your windows and doors and see what looks good.
Build, Paint and Install Cornice
To help tie the cornice into the dining room wall and the fireplace mantel, we’re using lattice strips. They’re thinner and smaller but mimic the same design.
We’ll use horizontal pieces at the top and bottom of the cornice, and we’ll add some vertical pieces in between.
