This is a simple project with a simple goal: Dress up the wall cabinet that has been installed above our Master Bathroom toilet. The ceilings are 9 feet and there was a lot of bland real estate above that 24” wall cabinet.
I used some 1×3 maple with ogee rout added, then blocking on top of that to give me something to shoot the crown into. The crown is some thick vinyl wrapped MDF I had laying around that is great for wet locations (This room contains a door-less walk-in shower and toilet only, so it gets a steam treatment a few times each day.
After assembly, I primed first with Zinsser spray primer (a great product), then puttied nail holes, fine caulked as needed (White Lightning and wet finger/rag method) only leaving caulk where required.
Finally, two coats of Sherwin Williams interior/exterior gloss acrylic enamel (tinted to match all the other trim in the house that is mostly oil-based (alkyd) paint).
Hey, no big deal to me (I’ve topped hundreds of feet of wall cabinets), but the wife likes it. That’s all that really matters, right ? Plus, I need something going on in between the Lumberjocks site and looking at hand planes on eBay. ;=)
Thanks for stopping in.
