Okay, I'm jumping the gun a bit on this one - so sue me.
I wanted to share this info with all of you and decided to do it now.
SWMBO and I do not always agree on things such as colors, textures, design, etc. (why do you think it's taking so long to do all this work?!). Crown moulding is one of those items we have not been able to agree on - till now.
We knew we wanted crown moulding in the kitchen, but couldn't decide on what type and style. Then, while helping our friends pack we were given a magazine with a picture of some custom kitchen cabinets in it. What jumped out at us was the crown moulding!
We both knew "This is the one"!!
It is the brain child of the people over at Crown Point Cabinetry. It is a simple design so it should be easy to duplicate. As they say "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".
This picture is a scan from the magazine add.
At first we thought it was a bathroom, but it is a custom Victorian design.
The scan isn't the best, so I would suggest you go here to see it in more detail.
Here is a close up of the same type of crown moulding.
It is actually called 'Bracketed Crown Moulding' and is a mainstay of the company's Arts & Crafts Designer Series.
The big difference between this and the Victorian is that the piece of molding the brackets are under in the A&C version is flat and the Victorian on is half round.
Also, we plan to use something similar to the toekick plate that they use in several of their Victorian kitchens. In fact, we are 'borrowing' several design elements from them.
Well, till next time...
