This molding is designed for installation on top of doors and windows. It cuts easily in a standard or compound miter saw as it not too tall to stand up or lay flat. Add a simple return to both cut ends and you have a beautiful finished look that dresses up the casing nicely. I added a 5 inch tall flat piece of base molding mdf over one door that needed height in 12 foot room first. Then, I installed the cap molding just above the top of the flat base molding. I added simple returns to both moldings to finish it off. I bought this when it was on sale. The priced was competitive with others.
i bought this molding not entirely sure how this project would go. two weekends later my first floor looks a billion times lusher. I absolutely recommend this for any room's crown molding. I've even ordered more to do rooms I thought might not realllly want it. It's easy, and gorgeous. it took two coats of white paint to look finished. I used a cheap nail gun (corded) to install, and spackled nail holes. I caulked both the top and bottom. I wouldn't recommend this material for any molding that people might touch regularly, but for crown, it looks just like painted wood when you're done.
I used this in my bathroom remodels mainly because of the polyurethane water resistant quality, but also because of the profile. The top hugs the ceiling and it runs down the wall very nice. The 4.5 inch overall profile fit nicely with the lower ceilings in the downstairs bath. They were easy to install also with this short profile. My miter could cut them on the fence. I painted a bright white to contrast my smoke gray walls. They look fantastic.
I used this medallion as a wall decor on top of my fireplace, instead of on the ceiling. I sprayed painted it with light stone color to match my firepalce. It looks very elegant, classical, like a piece of scuplture on the wall. Plus it is very light weight, easy to handle and great price. I would love to have a larger version of a similar medallion as a decor on the wall behind my sofa.
