Re: Crown molding - Baseboard - Trim - Ceiling white or other?

Crown moulding certainly is a level up in the do it yourself category. That is, doing it right and making it look great.

I know people who will do all their drywall and build up a place from scratch, but won't touch the crown moulding and instead call someone in due to the price of it and the learning curve of doing it right.

I've also seen some great books on it. Step-by-step type things the size of encyclopedias loaded with great tips.

Wouldn't hurt to stop in at the local library to see what they have on hand.

Crown moulding is your eye-candy. You really want that looking good. But if you're going to do it yourself, best plan on wasting lots for the learning processes and no harm done grabbing a couple of books on it.

I've done my whole basement from scratch so far. I think I can DIY crown moldings

No need, I can cope with a coping saw no problem.

Just saying, it's a craft on it's own. That's all.

It's really not that hard once you get the angle of the cuts right and learn to flip the crown. Coping is pretty easy as well once you do a piece or two.

Yeah, you waste some, but I don't think lots.
